Open a terminal (get used to this - Applications|Accessories|Terminal -
right click and save to panel so you'll have easy access later) and
issue these commands:

$ sudo lshw
[note: you can also use 'sudo lshw -c network' to show only the
networking portion, but I'd like to see the entire machine info)]
$ nm-tool
$ ifconfig
$ lspci -v
$ lsmod

*Do Not* post all of that here, instead copy and paste it to the content
box in: - click 'Paste!' and reply back with
the url that you are provided. That way others can look at the long
output without taking up list bandwidth.
