how to find out properties of net work card?


I'm quite new to the whole field of Linux, but have a SuSe Linux 8.2 machine running as server. As I haven't done the set up of the machine myself I don't really know about the hardware inside. Now I have to find out, if the net work card is has gigabit-abilities or is a slower one. Is there any command to find out about some properties of the network card like speed, vendor, name, ...

Thanks in advance!

Run the command
That ought to provide you with a fairly detailed description of your equipment. As an example, here's what that command returns about my NIC
