    if not, you can always use the fantastic Spiceworks
    Spiceworks - Free Network Monitoring Software for Network Management

    Still one of the most awesome pieces of free software I've used.

    If you can remove the switch, then maybe plug it into a PC with a copy of wireshark running to scan for any arp packets the switch send out.

    You might be able to find it's subnet from that.
