    Code:
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)
    Your wireless sounds like it's built into your machine so it'd be PCI. For viewers' general fund of knowledge Here's the output of my lsusb:
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0846:9030 NetGear, Inc.
    Put that device I.D. into google and you can find out chipset etc.

    Actually the wireless device will probably say network controller or have 802.11 in the description--the one label ethernet controller is the hardwired device.

    True. The machine I was posting from didn't use the network controller phrase for whatever reason. Most do.
