hi,

I have 2 Ethernet NIC on my PC. I need to know the command which shows the manufacturer (vendor) name or details of my 2 NICs.

If you want to get device information then use from the cli 'lspci -vv'. This will list the device(s). If you want a output that the kernel sees at boot then use 'dmesg |grep -i eth'. You could 'grep' the 'lspci' if you wish. I would 'man' the commands for a full understanding.

If you want a good hardware list then a utility like lshw would suffice. You would have too install the utility. There are packages available.
