  • In the "Run" line, enter "Cmd" and the "ipconfig / all" command. Within a few seconds, the monitor displays information on all installed network cards. If the card is not detected by the system, and there are no drivers, you can try to visually determine the model of the card — remove the card from the slot, then enter the manufacturer’s marking data into the search engine.In just a few seconds, the information will be displayed on the monitor screen.

It will not be difficult to determine the model of the installed network card, mainly by "Vendor ID" and "Device ID". Data is displayed at initial load (BIOS).
