    Maybe I am picky, but:
    - You want to solve it yourself, but ask for a solution here? (Not discouraging you, just cant follow that logic )
    - linux knowledge does not stop at setting an IP

    Anyway, ip, ifconfig and route are your friends for information gathering and adhoc configuration.
    Code:
    man ip
    man ifconfig
    man route
    For reboot safe configuration have a look at NetworkManager (Desktop)
    or (on redhat style machines) in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    If you manage to change some of the setting's your boss may have no doubt what to do with you , and I don't see that as being a good thing for you
