Ping by MAC Address

I just hooked up a Wireless Access Point (WAP) I got from a friend to my home network & it works. Now, I've go to enable the security freatures. Unfortunatley, I have no clue what its IP address is.
I've gotten to the Manufacturer's web site and their utility to connect to the WAP does not connect and the "reset to default settings" procedure as described in the user manual does not work.
I've tried a bevy of network tools like Look@LAN but none of them discover the WAP. I can only assume the WAP has an IP addresss that does not live within 192.168.0.n
I only have the MAC address printed on the serial number sticker attached to the bottom of the WAP. Is there a utility that wil allow me to ping by MAC Address to find out what the IP address is?
