Windows 7: How to find what wireless driver i need

If you get a live Linux disk and once it's installed (in live mode of course) you can open the terminal and do the command:

dmesg | more

Press the space bar to page through the output. It might identify the device you're looking for. Commands lspci and lsusb are good but dmesg really shows a lot. There must be an equivalent in WIn7 too...I'd like to know it myself.
