Resole MAC Address to IP Address

I have the MAC Address of a wireless access point and I need to access the web interface to setup MAC filtering but some one has changed the default password. If I reset the access point I will have to start from scratch and that is not a desireable solution. If I can avoid this I would like to. I dont know of any windows commands that will do this. Am I wrong or are there any third part apps that will do this. Please help

actually, you can't

What you could do is use this software


and scan your entire IP range.

you need Rarp to do this, but it's not really supported as a command in windows OS

Rarp: http://www.tcpipguide.com/free/t_ReverseAddressResolutionandtheTCPIPReverseAddressR-2.htm

If you have Linux/unix somewhere on your network, you can use this tool:

arping 00:00:0C:92:A1:55
ARPING 00:00:0C:92:A1:55
60 bytes from (00:00:0c:92:a1:55): icmp_seq=0 time=2.385 msec
You can change the address of the card using arp

arp -s "ip address" "ethernet address",

where ip address is the address that you want to give to the card and
ethernet address is the mac address.

But from the message I understand you want to crack a password. After using arp you'll access the card using the "ip address" you give it.

What I wrote is what you want?

It is what I want but I dont need to crack a password just need to access the Web interface to the wireless router. The web address to the router is whatever the IP Address is.
