Determine network driver in use

ethtool -i <network card>

<network card> can be eth0 etc.

Example output:

driver: e1000\\
version: 7.3.21-k4.1-NAPI\\
firmware-version: N/A\\
bus-info: 0000:02:00.0

The bus-info can be coupled with lspci

 lspci -s -v "2:"

Where 2: is taken from ethtool bus-info.
