Ah, the joys of the Windows registry.

I think what you're looking for is

KeyName:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\{AdapterName}\Parameters\Tcpip
where {AdapterName} will depend on what's in your system
My AdapterName is {5B367B63-49D6-4FF9-9D7D-655AD12F9B39}

ValueNames:
IPAddress
SubnetMask
DefaultGateway

I don't see any way out of hard-coding the adaptername strings into an
array.

However, I should point out that you have to restart after making
these changes in order for them to take effect. All networking changes
are established prior to logon. This makes the changes more or less
permanent, or at least until the next time they're changed. If you
have to go through all this it's probably easiest just to pop open the
Network control panel to make the changes.
