Since you just updated the firmware have you considered downgrading to the version that you had earlier eliminates the issue that you are seeing? It if does, it may be possible that the upgrade just didn't "take" properly and that reapplying may be all that is necessary.

Instead of downgrading the firmware I tried a factory default reset and then reconfigured the Airport Extreme with a clean start. So far this seems to have worked. It's been over three days now without a lockup. Keeping fingers crossed........

I had the same drop out since upgrading to 7.6.3. I recently downgraded to 7.6.1. I'll see how this works.

Please post if this happens again. I already posted another thread on this so I won't elaborate here but I am having intermittent freezes of both AirPort Extreme and Express - solid green light, no connectivity of either wired or wireless connections from the devices. Still haven't found a fix! I'm also on 7.6.3 but the problem was occurring on 7.6.1 so I don't think that it is related to firmware per se. There are some threads going WAY back (2006) describing this situation but it never seems to have been resolved.

Fyi: I have not had the drop out since downgrading to 7.6.1.

After doing a factory reset and reconfiguring my Airport Extreme I have not had a single drop out in over a week. I am still on 7.6.3 and I believe I've fixed the problem.

Thanks. Please post again if you have any further issues with 7.6.3. I will try the factory reset...

I am having the same problem. There have been a number of drops since I upgraded to 7.6.3 and each time I have power cycled the Airport. I just performed a factory reset; hopefully that does the job.
