how to find my wifi's ip address

Ok, I was in a hurry the other day replacing a WiFi, I set it up with a local static IP
it's up and running just fine now that I'm ready to revise it and reserve it on my DHCP server I cannot get into it because I forgot the IP address. Anyone know how I can find it's ip address ?
I'm looking for a simple option

You can use an IP scanner (I like Angry IP) to scan all IPs on your subnet to see which ones reply.  If you've not turned off ping replies on your WiFi device then it will reply and you'll likely get a name that identifies it.

Is it set up as an access point or as a router?  If it is configured as a router, run ipconfig on anything connected to it and the default gateway will be the LAN IP address of the WiFi router.

It's an access point

Another option is to ping the broadcast address (all bits high in the workstation part of the IP, e.g. 192.168.1.255) from a Windows workstation and then run arp -a.  You could compare the list of MAC addresses with the one listed on the access point and find the IP address there.

The IP scanner is the route I'd be taking.

The simplest thing would be just to do a factory reset (most devices have a button you push in for a couple of seconds, sometimes this needs to be done while powering on). Then just set it up again.
