On a Chromebook, how do I tell which wireless card is installed?

To determine which wireless card your Chromebook uses, open a browser and do the following:

  1. In the URL field (Google calls this the "Omnibox"), enter chrome://system.
  2. Scroll down to the section labeled "lspci". Click the Expand... button.
  3. In the list that appears, look for the line with the words "Network Controller" (not the line that says "Ethernet Controller"; that refers to the wired network adapter). The manufacturer and chipset model number will be on the right.
  4. When you're finished, close the browser window.
