Wireless access point control panel IP address

I've bought a (admittidly) cheap access point which I intend to use to extend my network. Currently, I just want to get to its browser based control panel in order to configure it. My PC can make a connection either wired, or wirelessly, but I can't find its control panel on the IP address specified in the manual. I've played with all manner of network settings but no joy. As it has made a connection, surely there is a way of knowing what I've connected with - in IP address terms. Does anyne know of a good utility which will tell me the network settings of the device?

Who makes the access point? -
Have you looked on their website?
Have you tried 192.168.1.1?

click here I have just run the latest download on my machine and it gives me the wireless settings for the router under the communication heading of the report. Its http: //192.168.1.1 (no space after http: - it would turn into a clickhere) A common IP address for a router.

Are you certain it's a browser based control panel? Mine's an old Belkin and I had to install the configuration software from disk.

Check a few ip addresses, i.e. 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, etc

I gave up on this. Tried many obvious IP addresses, Belarc Advisor is good, but no joy, and decided that returning it while I could and paying a bit more for a more easily managed one would be a better policy.

Thanks for your help.

I'm going to post a request for a recommendation separately - any ideas ... ?
