How do I find out the model of my network card?

I'm having huge problems with Windows right now, it stopped recognizing my network card as existing. I tried reformatting and reinstalling windows to get it to work but have the same problem. Linux seems to work just fine however, and detects and uses my network card like normal. I'm wondering if there is a way to figure out what my network card is using KNOPPIX so that I can find the right drivers to download.

Or, if you've got a lot on your PCI bus, you can cut it down:
$ /sbin/lspci | grep net
02:05.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
