Here is a very simple way to look at what kind of network connections you have.

go into the control panel, inside here you will find an icon that says network connections.

double click this icon and you will be presented with a list of currently installed network adapters, you should see something like this: "local area connection" and it will tell you the type of adapter it is (ethernet adapter, wireless). if you only see one lan connection then its more than likely just a 10/100 NIC.

Also you can right click on my comptuer, select properties, click on the hardware tab, then select device manager. This list contains all hardware devices on your machine, expand the network adapters and see what you have there.

(note, i assume you are using windows XP)

hope this answers your question.
