Open Device Manager (Start, Run, devmgmt.msc) and look under Network Adapters for specifics.

thanks - i'm a little bit of a newbie - will the driver be labelled as an ethernet driver - or does that depend on the make?

That's about what you should see in the device manager. Open Control Panel > System and you'll find the device manager.

From Device Manager, expand the Network Adapters to show your specific adapter. Right click on this adapter and select Properties. From there select the Driver tab then select Driver Details.
Hope this helped.
