I have a D-Link router and a TP-Link access point configured as a wireless repeater. I would like to know whether I'm currently connected directly to the router or to the repeater. I guess the easiest way to find out is to see if the MAC address of the network I'm connected to is the same as the router's or as the repeater's MAC. However, I don't know the router/repeater MAC addresses and I also don't know what's the MAC address of the network I'm connected to.

How do I find the mentioned information?

I'm using Windows 7.

can you log into both router and access point configuration pages via a web browser? It would help if you knew the router and access point IP addresses. Example: would bring you to your D-Link router setup page and would bring you to your TP-Link access point setup page. –  CheeseConQueso Jun 18 '13 at 19:59
