if you run ipconfig /all usually your router will also be your default gateway. Use this ip address and you should be able to connect to the router.

Sorry to not have clarified, but it is a separate wireless router. It's just a WAP for guests...

I would probably still log into your router once in most of them will have a listing of connected devices. This should tell you the IP address and host name of any device thats currently connected to your LAN.

Connect further...control easier

Here is what I do in a case like that:
I set up a laptop with the largest possible (or reasonable) subnet like:
192.168.0.0 /  255.255.0.0
leave the gateway and DNS blank.
Use a tool like AngryIPScanner and run the range of the subnet.
Go get a cup of coffee.
When you return, the IP address should be displayed.

If you can limit the range to make the search faster then so much the better.

Of course, this requires taking the device off the network .. but it may be worthless to you until you get this done.

For small networks (and when I might be remote from the site)  I might use something like LANScan and find all the IP addresses and narrow the list down.
Then access the likely addresses with a browser.  

Might this device still be using its default IP address?  That would be nice but would mean your subnet would match.  Not entirely unlikely...

the easiest way is direct connect to your AP and if your AP is running DHCP then you can run ipconfig to get the gateway or use angry ip as mention above..

but it sounds like the AP is not belong to u since you dont know the ip address so i assume you will not know the username and password for the particular device.. if it is the case then you need to reset the device.
