    Update for you. Actually I'm not sure if you'll find the nic with modprobe. There is a device list somewhere that lists dozens of devices but I don't have it handy.

    You can also get some of the info you asked about with the command hwinfo

    I don't know what linux distro you are using but SUSE has an excellent tool in the YAST package that gives the best hardware info I've ever seen.

    Hope this helps.
