I just upgraded my system to Windows 8 and, for the life of me, couldn't find the CD installer of my PCI wireless adapter, nor could I remember the make and model of it.
Any way I can find out what it is?
See where I put a red arrow at? I'd copy and paste that to Google and maybe you'll find a hit to your wireless adaptor. It helped me when I couldn't find drivers back when I had XP.

If it's a custom built computer you will need to hope that there's a logo on the physical hardware.
If it's a prebuilt computer, you'll need to check the model number with the manufacturer. You could just try random drivers, since for most chips by one manufacturer there's a universal driver.
Try the drivers from the following if you can't work out by checking manually: Atheros
there may be more and if I think of more I shall update this list
Here in the states the FCC make them put stickers on them with serial and part numbers. You can get just about any info on the component with a part number.
