Find IP address for second router?

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, Core i7/ 6Gb
We used to have two Belkin 10/100 Wireless G routers up in our old place, one of which was set up as only an access point. Then we moved, and one router's been in its box for a year. Now I've hooked it up, and it doesn't seem to be working; I'm wondering if it has reverted to factory settings? My WPA PSK doesn't seem to allow me to connect to my network, and anything hooked up to the Ethernet ports can't be seen by other hardwired computers on the other side of the router (I.e., hooked up to the other router). I went to the Belkin website and tried to access it using the default IP address, but IE just said it couldn't reach that address. I've looked at the list of assigned IP addresses on my primary router, but none of them is the other router. Any ideas how I can find out what the IP address is on the second router to get in and make setting changes? Anything else I need to know? I don't know much about networking--I just followed the instructions the first time.

I would probably disconnect the router from upstream, hook up to it by wire and get in and set it up the way you want.

Odds are you set it to not provide ip addresses since it was configured just as a AP.

With it disconnected from the network and one a single pc wired to its lan port, set it back to factory defaults, reboot your pc so it gets a ip address and then enter the router config to reconfigure as an AP>

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Dang, I meant to include resetting the router to wipe the AP business. Absolutely.
