Netsh.exe can be very useful in viewing and editing TCP/IP settings from the command line.

To view your TCP/IP settings in a Command Prompt, type
netsh interface ip show config

To configure an IP address and other TCP/IP related settings:
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" static 192.168.1.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 1

To obtain an IP address from a DHCP server:
netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" dhcp

To configure DNS and WINS addresses:
netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.200

and this for WINS:
netsh interface ip set wins "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.200

Or, to dynamically obtain DNS settings:
netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" dhcp

As a bonus tip, you can export your IP settings to a text file using the following command:
netsh -c interface dump > c:IPSettings.txt

To import the settings, type
netsh -f c:IPSettings.txt
OR
netsh exec c:location2.txt

You can use this to quickly switch between different settings.
