    if a tomato router (in AP mode) had it's IP address set and then forgotten how would one go about finding the address?

    (Post moved to new thread.) Easiest response, hold the reset button for 30 seconds to reset it to default. Not so easy, scan your network with nmap. Even more challenging, you could use wireshark to capture your Ethernet traffic and you will eventually find the MAC address (and IP) of your AP. via broadcast frames

    uPNP, eg in Vista auto detect the router location and displays it and its range. Your network properties tab should also give you hint as where your router is located. Unless you've purposely hide it,eg disable uPNP, non-standard addressing, then it becomes more complicated so follow instructions from Disman_ca.
