The IP-address and the IP-Mask are  located in the registry :
the location is differrent for each OS (Win9X, NT4, NT5)

Example:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\0002

You will need to find the key where your info is stored....

procedure TForm1.SetTCPIP(IpAddress, IpMask:pchar);
var KeyHandle, SubKeyHandle:THandle;
    SubKeyName, NetworkDesc:array[0..255] of char;
    ValType, NetworkDescLength, SubKeyNameLength, index:dword;
    LastWriteTime:PFileTime;
begin
  index:=0;
  SubKeyNameLength:=255;
  RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
'System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans', 0, KEY_ALL_ACCESS,
KeyHandle);
  while (RegEnumKeyEx(KeyHandle, index, SubKeyName, SubKeyNameLength, nil,
nil, nil, LastWriteTime)<>ERROR_NO_MORE_ITEMS) do
  begin
    RegOpenKeyEx(KeyHandle, SubKeyName, 0, KEY_ALL_ACCESS, SubKeyHandle);

    NetWorkDescLength:=255;
    RegQueryValueEx(SubKeyHandle, 'DriverDesc', nil, @ValType, @NetworkDesc,
@NetworkDescLength);
    if (NetworkDesc='TCP/IP') then break;

    inc(index);
    SubKeyNameLength:=255;
  end;
  if (NetworkDesc<>'TCP/IP') then
  begin
    messagebox(0,'TCP/IP protocol is not installed on your computer','',0);
    exit;
  end;
  NetWorkDescLength:=255;
  RegSetValueEx(SubKeyHandle, 'IPAddress', 0, REG_SZ, IpAddress, 15);
  RegSetValueEx(SubKeyHandle, 'IPMask', 0, REG_SZ, IpMask, 15);
end;


then call the procedure on a button click or so...

SetTCPIP('255.254.253.255', '255.255.255.255');//IP, Subnetmask...
