Cannot find Access Point IP Address

I have a Linksys WAP54G Access Point connected to a Netgear FVS318 Prosafe Router. I had no problem locating the AP IP address (192.168.1.245) when it was connected to a router with a default IP address of 192.168.1.1; however the Netgear uses a default IP address of 192.168.0.1 and now I cannot find the AP IP address, even though it works fine with the Netgear.
I have checked the attached devices on the Netgear, but the AP does not show up. I have tried ipconfig/all from a laptop that connects with the AP, but it only shows the IP address of the router . I have tried netstumbler, bit it only shows  the AP's MAC address - the IP address column is blank. I have tried Angry IP scanner, but it does not show the AP.
Thanks for your assistance

Hi
Before reading below. Disconnect the netgear router from the linksys AP.

From what you are saying the AP (192.168.1.0 network) and the netgear (192.168.0.0 network). If the default subnets (255.255.255.0) is being used they will not be able to talk to each other. I suggest changing the AP's ip address to a 192.168.0.xxx address and then try reconnecting the AP to the router.

klaughton: The default subnet is being used, however are they not seeing each other if the AP is working on the router? The AP works fine, it's just that I cannot find its IP address.
thecomputerdocs: Tried NEWT Pro - it did not locate the AP's IP address.
