Finding IP address of a managed switch/access point

I configured a wireless router as a access point (turn of dhcp, assign a static ip, connect lan cable to lan port). But after a few months I forgot the static ip of the wireless router acting as an access point/switch. Then I found Network Scanner (http://www.softperfect.com/products/networkscanner/) that listed all the devices on the network.  And I could easily tell which one is the switch as there are only two devices outside the DHCP range.
