The entry is as follows:

Bus  2, device   8, function  0:
  Ethernet controller: PCI device 8086:103a (Intel Corporation) (rev 
  IRQ 9.
  Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=8.Max Lat=56.
  Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xd5000000 [0xd5000fff].
  I/O at 0xb800 [0xb83f].

Opening the case wasn't particularly illuminating (though one of the
intel chips did say FW82801BD).

The (pre-installed) Windows driver describes it as an
Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
