Question VIA VNT 6656G6A40 Wi-Fi USB card driver


I am using Ubuntu and I need to blacklist the driver for the VIA VNT 6656G6A40 Wi-Fi USB card, but I don't know what driver it is. I have used modprobe, lsusb, lspci, and a few other commands. I do know its id and vendor codes, but not the driver. I was wondering if anyone knows what command to use to get the name of the driver or what I need to put into the blacklist file.

Hi!
Don't knowing if it will help.
1. There is a protocol named "dmesg", but the output has hundreds of lines:
Code:
dmesg
2. "lsmod" shows you the moduls:
Code:
lsmod

Well, I figured it out finally. lsmod and demsg did not really help. I used an application called hwinfo which lists just about everything for the device including the driver.
