It will have an IP provided by your network so to access the netgear just look at DHCP from other device and see what address it assigned it.
Or you can always factory reset.
In AP mode its basically a basic Access Point and still gives the ability to use the USB ports but thats about it.

What is it you want the WNDR4500 to do?
Have you tried having it in AP mode and accessing it to see if it has options you are after? You can turn on AP mode and give it a static IP on your same network (of course make sure its not a address something else has) and than when you hit save you will know what addy to go to.

The IP address given to items plugged into the WNDR4500 will reflect the IP of the master router. I found using the yellow WAN port gave me issues. I plugged the Ethernet cable from my router downstairs into the WAN port of the WNDR4500. My VoIP phones would not work! Plugging the router Ethernet cable into one of the 4 LAN ports resolved all of that. I believe the WNDR4500 firewall kicks in when using the WAN port, even when in AP mode. So I've got nothing plugged into the yellow WAN port while in AP Mode.
