What kind of device is an Ethernet PCI Controller?  Have to find a driver for it, but don't know what kind of device it is.
Thanks.

A Network Adapter. Yours may be built into the motherboard itself.

I am assuming that windows is detecting this device and asking you for the drivers?  You can look at the back of your computer and see if you have a square connector that looks like an oversized telephone jack.  It may or may not have a couple of colored LEDs next to it.  Unless you need to connect to a network, it really does not matter if you load the drivers, so when Windows detects it just click next until it asks if you want to continue without loading the drives.  Otherwise you will have to determine the exact card chipset, mfr, model, etc. which can be difficult at best unless the card is clearly marker, (rarely).  The only way to find this out is to open up the computer case, remove the ethernet card and examine it for information.  More on that later if you want to go that route.

If it is integrated (such as Dell) then you would need to get the drivers from the manuf web site.  If you can't find then then let us know the computer make and model and we will try to direct you to the drivers for it.
As already stated, if it is an expansion card, remove it and read the type off of the card.  If there is no brand printed on the card you may be able to find that out using the FCC ID (which should be on the back of the card) at www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid

All 3 comments were very helpful.  Is it possible to split the grading for each comment?
Thanks.

Yes.  Post a question for CS (link at left) and put a link to this question and let them know what to drop this point value to.  You then select one of the comments as an answer and put up separate questions with the title Points For ... in the New Computer Users area.  Pretty easy, actually.
