Yes, the command is 'netsh'.
More information is available here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257748
To change the IP address : "netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" static ipaddr subnetmask gateway metric"

The general help for netsh on the older os's is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738592%28WS.10%29.aspx and includes more information on changing the DNS settings, and well as a host of other options...
