First step is to find what it is. The lspci command should show that.

  1. You find the chipset/brand/manufacturer of your NIC - with lspci/lsdev/lsusb/lshal/dmesg/other.
  2. You input that data on Google Linux, and search your way through.
  3. Then, when you got some more info (and if you can't follow any guide you may find), you come back here.
