You could use a wireless device to connect to the rogue access point and then check the ip configuration you received. The Gateway entry would be the ip of the access point.

You can also check the ARP Table of a switch that is on the same network.
Or check the local ARP Table on a device that can see the access points mac  address using a command prompt to run:  arp -a

Not unless it's on your network.
If it's on your network you can ping every address using a tool like Angry IP Scanner, which should make it show up in the output of
arp -a

Other than that, you can look up the manufacturer by the MAC address on lots of web sites.
e.g. http://www.macvendorlookup.com/

Several options (ONLY if the device is in your network)
1- Use IP Scanners eg angry ip scanner, advanced ip scanner etc) - Then match the mac to ip on the list

2- Pinging the hostname (if known)
eg ping hostname
This will resolve the name to ip

3- Check the lease address on the DHCP router or DHCP server (whichever one you're using) then match the mac addresses on the list to the ip
