Identify Your Wired Intel® Ethernet Adapter and Driver Version


Identify My Product



  • Option One: Scan with the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU).

    Intel® SSU is a standalone utility that performs a detailed scan of your computer system information and devices. Intel® SSU produces an output file that you can save, view, and share.

    You can also save the scan to a file. Share the file with Intel Customer Support to help troubleshoot issues or answer questions.

    See the Intel® SSU Help Guide for more information.

    1. Download Intel® SSU. Save the application to your system.
    2. Open the application and click Scan to view system and device information.


  • Option Two: Select any of the following options to manually identify your wired Intel® Ethernet Adapter and driver.

    Look at the barcode label on your adapter to find the part number

    If your network adapter plugs into your computer, the part number is on the barcode label. The part number is a six-digit number, followed by a hyphen and three more digits. The three-digit number after the hyphen is a minor revision number. You don't need it to identify your adapter.

    Using this barcode example, the part number is 721383.

    Use Linux* to find your adapter driver version and device name

    Choose a method to find your driver version and device name:

    • Download and run the Network Device and Driver Information Utility for Linux*.
    • Use manual directions to find the name of the network adapter. You must have permissions to run the commands in Linux.
      • Enter lspci -v | grep Ethernet -A 1.
      • The name of the adapter displays on the Subsystem line.
        • Example for Intel® PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter:

          # lspci -v | grep "Ethernet" -A 1
          02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82571EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
          Subsystem: Intel Corporation PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter
          02:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82571EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
          Subsystem: Intel Corporation PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter

    • Use manual directions to find the driver version:
      • Type ethtool -i ethx where ethx is the Ethernet port.
      • Read the driver name and version.
        • Example for the first Ethernet port, eth0:

          # ethtool -i eth0
          driver: e1000
          version: 7.6.5-NAPI
          firmware-version: 5.6-2
          bus-info: 0000:02:00.0

    • To find a list of Ethernet port names and their hardware addresses:
      • Use the ip link command from the iproute2 package.
        • Example:

          # ip link
          1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
          2: em0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000 link/ether 00:11:22:33:44:55 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
