If you have a decent switch (read: manageable), you could query its MAC table and find the port it is connected to. If the packet you capture isn't an IP packet (which obviously is the case, otherwise Wireshark would display the IP content too), chances are the device you're looking for does not have an IP address ... in that case, any IP query mechanism would fail ...
otherwise, you could use tools like nmap to scan your network while capturing with wireshark (or doing "arp -a" on the box you're scanning from) to find the right machine ...
Wireshark show you MAC address of source and destination.
You can use freeware Advanced IP Scanner for scanning IP and MAC address:
