I'm not sure, but, judging by Ubuntu bug report #1074529:
Quote:
dmi.board.name: Z77E-ITX
dmi.board.vendor: ASRock

it seems from the output of the lspci command quoted in that Ubuntu bug report that it could be a Realtek WiFi controller:

Hadn't even thought of checking the ubunta forums and when I posted, my google fu was very weak, so thatnks for that.

Now all I have to do is get the board and decide if I want to replace the WiFi with an Intel Centrino model.
