Generally speaking the Dell website is right.
To be sure do an lsmod to look for the tg3/e1000 driver.
For the Broadcom Gigabit card do 'lsmod | grep tg3'
For the Intel Gigabit card do 'lsmod | grep e1000'.
If the site is right (and it should be) you will see the later command
return information about the loaded driver.
