The command "netsh" will allow you to do networky things from the XP command line.
If you open a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd -> OK), then type:
It will dump a list of configuration stuff.
netsh interface ip dump
You can edit this for the network card you are interested in, save it somewhere, and use it as an input to the netsh command (netsh /? for help - I can't remember the details).
I don't know of any other ways to do this, but there probably are some.
