Determining wireless card to connect to wlan

Complete Linux newb, made a very foolish mistake. I installed Fedora 9 on my laptop, but before doing so forgot to make a note of what my installed wireless card actually is. I installed on an Acer Aspire, 55700-2067. I'm sure there's a way to find out what kind of card I have, but haven't had much luck so far. Does anyone have suggestions as to how I can determine this (or actually know what the card is)?

Thanks everyone,
