Hi, I'm trying to find out if my NIC card is properly installed. I tried doing ping 127.0.0.1 and everything seems to be working right... Now I want to know what IP I have so I need to do ifconfig <interface> but I don't know the name of my interface... I was suggested to use dmesg but it shows too many output and I just don't know which info I need... THe manufacturer of my NIC is unkown to me... Thanks!

do "ifconfig -a" and it will show all of the machines interfaces that are
currently "initiated" (plumbed). One of them will be lo0, this is the
loopback address (127.0.0.1). If you only have one other device that
actually contains an ip address, then your good. If your machine has
multiple ip addresses, then ask the nearest qualified administrator to
help you.
