is there a way I can check what model my drivers are from ubuntu?

I need to see what model my LAN USB adapter is.. But when I open Disk Utility all I see is my harddrive and a flash drive I've inserted.. Where can I go deeper and see my monitor model, my graphic card, all usb plugged in (like keyboard, mouse, internet) etc. ?? Thanks a lot

Try out lsusb command at terminal and see what is the description that you get. – mzcl-mn Apr 10 '12 at 19:54
sudo lshw

Should give you this info. If you want a better display, you can use sudo lshw -html > file_of_your_choice.html and open the file with your browser
