How do I tell what network card I have in my PC?


Recommended Posts

I ask because I am wondering whether or not my computer is running the internet as fast as it should (I pay for 100 mbp/s and my computer is usually the only one online). I don't have the documentation for it anymore but it was a custom build by a company called Cyber Works. All Speccy tells me is that it is a "Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller."

Your card is 1.0 Gbps, that's what the GbE part stands for.  It'd have to be really old to be anything slower.

 

By the way, here's instructions on how to find the speed of your ethernet controller. >> https://winaero.com/blog/see-the-ethernet-or-wifi-adapter-speed-in-windows-10/

 

So that's most likely not what's slowing you down.  Are you connected directly to a modem or is the modem connected to a router... or is it a modem router combo.  Please post your model number or your modem (and router if applicable).  How old is the machine you're working with?
