Identify your network adapter and driver version on Windows Vista*

Note This procedure cannot identify the adapter if there is no driver installed.

If your Ethernet adapter is unknown, try downloading the latest driver by:
  1. Use Intel® Device Update Utility to automatically identify and find the latest drivers.
  2. If Intel® Device Update Utility fails, choose your Windows version from the Drivers and Software list. These downloads cover most Intel® Ethernet Adapters and will install the latest drivers when you run them.

The network adapter property sheet in Windows Vista* provides information about the network adapter and driver on the computer.
