If your on that machine locally and its a NIC your speaking of.. ifconfig will tell you this information.

If your on a network use the arp command followed by the IP or host to find the MAC address of the NIC, etc.

Well then, unconfigure it, remove it possibly, remove all your configurations files for it and then reinstall it.
