It would be really good if hardware information was also posted along with the table information. Using hwinfo, you can collect this information. You can post information just about the Motherboard or the LAN chipset. Getting hwinfo could work as follows

  • Boot to imaging maintenance prompt.
  • Create a mount point to mount your thumb drive to save the hardware output to
mkdir /mnt/thumb
  • Mount a thumb drive to save the hardware output to
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/thumb
  • Run hwinfo dumping desired info
hwinfo --bios >> /mnt/thumb/model.txt
hwinfo --netcard >> /mnt/thumb/model.txt

Now, you can post the information to a wiki page related to the model of the NIC.
