    How to read out the driver in use?

    hi,
    I want to read out which Wifi driver I am using. I know it is the Broadcom STA wireless driver but I need to know the exact name to add it to /etc/network/interfaces.

    Thanks.

    Why do you want to do this?
    As far as I know you should not need to put the network module (driver) name in /etc/network/interfaces

    This is my /etc/network/interfaces

    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0

    There is no mention of my wifi interface
