How do I verify how many NIC's I have

How do I verify how large the NIC is (10GB or 1GB)

Run ifconfig and it will show you the NICs.  eth0 is the first ethernet (eth1, eth2, etc.) and wlan0 is the first wireless adapter.

ifconfig shows the interfaces
for the connection speed, do dmesg | grep -i duplex

Hi

ifconfig -a will be the best way that way it will show u all interfaces including the ones are not up

For the speed try the following

ethtool interface

ethtool eth0
