IP Address - you can make an AJAX call to a server script which can then return the IP address.

The MAC Address as far as I know is not available. There are custom solutions that use ActiveX controls but that will only work on IE and only if the ActiveX control is installed - at least that is where I left off the last time I looked at this - maybe someone has some newer info.
