Dim mos As System.Management.ManagementObjectSearcher
Dim moc As System.Management.ManagementObjectCollection
Dim mo As System.Management.ManagementObject
Dim prop As System.Management.PropertyData = Nothing
Dim FSO As Object = Nothing
Dim txtstream As Object = Nothing
Dim MyString As String = String.Empty
mos = New System.Management.ManagementObjectSearcher("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")
moc = mos.Get()
For Each mo In moc
    Console.WriteLine(mo.GetText(Management.TextFormat.Mof))
Next
 

Above code returns information about Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration. Look for DNSDomain.

Just add a reference to System.Managment namespace.
