Is the a way of finding out what driver i am using for my wifi dongle.

I've used LSUSB to identify the device, but i need the driver name so i can set up hostapd, i have several wifi adapters of several makes to try, so would be handy to be able to quickly identify which driver is being used.

dmesg will give you the driver it loads when you plug it in
