By default, the AirPort Express will broadcast an unsecured wireless network with a Network Name (aka SSID) of something like: Apple Network NNNNNN. Does your PC "see" this network? Your PC needs to connect to the AirPort's wireless network BEFORE the AirPort Utility can find it. This is also true since you connected the AirPort to your LAN that is running on a different subnet than the default 10.0.n.n that the AirPort uses.
The other option is to temporarily connect your PC directly to the Express by Ethernet, make the necessary changes via the AirPort Utility, and then, reconnect it back to your LAN.

this help quite a lot. appreciated.
in general, can the AX be managed via LAN or is WiFi connection required?
I will now set both AX up as individual APs and at a later stage I'll add roaming to it.
thanks again and take care!
