I have a wireless access point that I need to find the ip

August 16, 2012 at 08:45:20
Specs: Windows 7
I have a wireless access point I cannot determine the ip for, every thing I try to find it just gives me the ip of my router. I need to change the channel of the wireless access point itself, the router doesn't allow me to do that.

Did you assign it a static ip? Perhaps angryip scanner can find it [google it]

If its a dhcp client you will see that in the Attached Devices page in the router.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Have you logged into your wireless router and looked at the associated clients list? This would display all devices connected to your router by IP and depending on the type of router it may give you the mac addresses as well.

Also when you connect to the access point does it appear as the gateway? Are you incorporating VLANs on this AP? If so are you using an explicit management vlan as well?

Just use any portscanner to identify ip addresses listening on port 80. There can't be that many in your network. Then look at them one-by-one.

If the device is on the same broadcast domain you can check your ARP table and look for the MAC address:

From a command prompt:

arp -a
