  • Chipset - Chipset vendor name, chipset name, vendor code, and device code. For example, if one was looking for a PCI device:

  • Driver - For a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network | grep Kernel
            Kernel driver in use: rtl8192ce

    It's the 'rtl8192ce'.

  • Works "out of the box"
    • Yes - It works perfectly with no manual modifications, or degraded performance.
