    Wireless access point detection

    I am currently using netstumbler I've found the SSID number I know the password et cetera but I don't know the IP address. Does anyone know of a free piece of software that could help?

    I'm pretty sure our core switches (HP 4000 / 8000 series) can match the IP address of a device to a known MAC address, and vice-versa. Perhaps yours can do the same and you can get the device's MAC address and look it up? That or connect it to a standalone machine and run a portscan over the entire range it should be on.

    Can you hyper terminal into the switch by connecting a laptop to a serial cable etc. The through the console discover what the IP is.

    What make / model of WAP is it?

    Arping

    You can do this using arping, I think there are Windows binary available now but you would probably be better using linux here
