You can list all adapters from command line using :
netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces
netsh interface ipv4 show ipaddresses

If you prefer you can use powershell Get-NetAdapter cmdlet that will return name, interface description, index number, and status of all the network adapters present on your system.

Get-NetAdapter only works in Server 2012 or Windows 8. Depending on what info you are needing I can give you a script.

I should have been clearer.

I'm looking to generate a report of all workstations on the domain and their assigned IPv4 addresses, default gateways, and DNS entries.

In Powershell you can list all workstations in the domain with this script.
Dont forget to install windows component for AD module import

# List All Servers and Desktop in AD
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADComputer -filter * -properties OperatingSystem,IPv4Address | Select Name,OperatingSystem,IPv4Address | Export-CSV C:\ServersAndDesktops.csv -nti
