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

example

ethtool eth0

u will see something like this:

Settings for eth0:
        Supported ports: [ TP ]
        Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full

        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                1000baseT/Full
        Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
        Speed: 100Mb/s
