if you are using Win2k you can use
the IP helper library,
On nt4 you can extarct the info from the registry,
every installed adapter which is bind to
TCP/ip has a TCP/IP key where all the info you need is stored - including IP address,mask,gateway,etc..

lets say you have one network adapter
under HKLM/software/Microsoft/Windows Nt/Current version/Network cards/1
check the servicename value - this is the name of the base driver instance -
E100b1 for Intel 10/100 adapter.
then, go to HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/E100B1/TCPIP/Parameters and you will see everything you want
