Airport Utility Cannot See Airport Express?

Hello, have an Airport Express and I have been using it for around 6 months. I connected my old Stereo amp via airplay and it worked perfectly fine for the 6 month period. I recently bought a new Airport Express but even though the Amber light is blinking nothing else happens and my airplay cannot see or detect it? Can anyone tell me what the issue is?

Check these instructions if Airport Utility is not recognizing Airport Express

  • Perform a hard reset

    First of all, unplug your Airport Extreme. Now take a sharp object like the paperclip and insert into Apple router’s reset hole that is located on the back side. While pressing reset button, plug Airport Extreme back to power supply. You have to press Reset button until LED light (status) starts flashing rapidly & after this release the Reset button.
  • Check access privileges

    If you have enabled encryption on your network then first thing is that you have to verify if you have setup Airport properly or not. To confirm if you are using correct password and settings, you can refer manual that came with your router. If you have secured your network via access control then confirm that Mac address is registered with the network administrator.
  • Perform a power cycle

    Power down your modem first and then Airport Express and then your system. Wait for some time approx 15-20 minutes. After this, power on your modem first & then Airport and then your system.
  • Check wireless settings

    Make sure WiFi connection is turned on and you have entered the correct password.
  • Check if network card is broken

    If your Airport Utility router is not detecting Airport Utility then it might be possible that you are using a bad network card. So, I will suggest you to replace network card along-with logicboard.
