See the SDK docs on the IPHLP API. A good starting place is the:

DWORD GetAdaptersInfo(
  PIP_ADAPTER_INFO pAdapterInfo,  // buffer to receive data
  PULONG pOutBufLen               // size of data returned
);

function in the documentation.

BTW, if you don't find it in your MSDN library, get an updated SDK as this is a "newer" function.  It is only available in Win98, NT4, 2000, and XP.  Win95 does not support it.

That seems to work for what I need since I'm concerned with NT 4.0.
Thanks for the help!

BTW: How would you get the same info on a Win95 machine?
