Check if you are interested in NETSH utility (built-in one). You can use it to set up IP address or DNS servers
About NETSH utility
http://technet.microsoft.com/pl-pl/library/cc785383%28WS.10%29.aspx

For setting up static IP with DNS (you can skip commands for IP address, use only part for DNS) at
http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm

NETSH can be used with -r switch to make settings on remote computer.

But I'm wondering why you don't want to use DHCP server for that? You can set up in Scope options, option no 006 with all DNS servers list in your network. Clients will get those settings automatically.

Regards,
Krzysztof

Have a look at these two links - you will find vb code for what you're wanting to do.

If you add your script as a startup object in Group Policy you won't need to worry about users not be admins.
