Windows: Network Interface Information

You can easily look up the metric that Windows assigns to your network interfaces by typing the following on a command line:
netsh int ipv4 show interfaces
Windows displays an index, metric, maximum transmission unit, state, and interface name.

While ipconfig is a common way to determine the IP address(es) of you computer, another way to get the IP address is to run:
netsh int ipv4 show ipaddresses

Figuring out which name server you are using is simple too, with the following command:
netsh int ipv4 show dnsservers

For information about IPv6 instead of IPv4, simply replace the '4' with a '6' in the above commands.
