I have exact the same problem - but only on my Macbook Air (Model 2011). I can config my Airport Extrem (Firmware 7.6.3) with the option "configure other" under menu... But it could not detect automatically....
I have noticed that on my iMac (connected via LAN-Interface and WLAN) I can choose over which interface I will work (upper left corner "other WLAN-devices"). But on my Macbook Air I cannot change or choose that because I have only WLAN. So I assume that's the problem with the new Arport Utility 6.3...
Please Apple, have a look at this...

Just wanted to make a note that the new Airport utility doesn't recognize my one Airport Extreme and two Airport Expresses. All have the latest firmware. The last of the utility did work, albeit I had some problems at first after I updated the utility. Restarting the devices and my iMac didn't work. The old version of Airport Utility I have installed, 5.6, does work. On my iPad and iPhone the latest versions work as well. Strange... I'll fill in the feedback form as well. Hope they fix it fast.

Make use of the feeback link , dutchmaccie supplied. Airport Utility will not read any settings from Airiport ..
regardless if you reboot or acces the hardware via wifi or ethernet.

I gave my feedback to Apple directly. My problem is solved by downgrading the Utility to version 6.2. There is no loss of functionality whatsoever and it works like a charm: all my devices are recognized. The only bugging thing is it asks me to update to version 6.3 everytime I open the app. But then again: that's a small price to pay.

I have a similar problem - good Internet connection, properly installed and functioning Airport Extreme, but no auto detect of my Airport Express (used to extend the coverage on my wireless network in my house). Running Airport Utility 6.3 and all firmware updates installed.
In Airport Utility, I can locate the Airport Express from the drop down link titled "Other WI-fi Devices" in the upper left-hand corner of Airport Utility. When I click on the Airport Express tab it starts to try to locate and join the Airport Express to my network (i.e. indicates, "getting info", "retrieving previous settings") and then stops, showing an error message that reads"unexpected error, try again." I've reset the Airport Express multiple times and powered off/on both my cable modem and Airport Extreme base station. Nothing works. Was working fine prior to updating firmware and Airport Utility to v. 6.3. Any suggestions?

In response to the reply of rstaerk I tried to configure the Airport over ethernet and that way I was able to configure it. So it seems a wifi only problem...
@Daniel Doe Jr: How did you downgrade to 6.2? Removing 6.3 by using the terminal?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 14, 2013 2:37 AM (in response to dutchmaccie)
his worked for me and Airport Utility sees all my devices now.I indeed did it through the Terminal. But behold: in another thread I found the solution to this problem. I found this:Re: Airport Utility v 6.3 Fails to See Airport Extreme or Express
Looks like 6.3 is using IPv6 to talk to Time Capsules/Airports. I know I had turned off IPv6 long ago since I didn't need it. Also looks like Apple has removed 'Off' as a valid choice for that setting.
To turn IPv6 back on:
Open System Preferences->Network
Change Configure IPv6 from 'Off' to 'Link-local only'
AU 6.3 should now be able to communicate with your device.
This worked for me and Airport Utility 6.3 sees all devices in my network. You should try this too. Good luck!

Thanks Daniel Doe Jr! That's an excellent work around. And it explains varying results with lan/wlan. I had IPv6 enabled on lan, but not on wlan, and that's why the utility recognized the Airport for me only at a lan connection, but for some others lan neither wlan worked.

After updating my Macbook to version 10.8.5 I dont see available networks in my Wifi. Wifi says no networks selected, and the reason is that it is not showing any Wifi networks only...even though i sit right next to my wifi router. However on my other devices my Wifi network is showing. I own Macbook mid 2009 make Aluminium 13.3". Someone please help.

I'm having a similar problem - following update to 10.8.5 (Airport 6.3.1). I can connect by selecting my network... but then it disconnects within a few seconds. Airport utility is unable to find any airport base stations... My other devices are working fine and I've never had this problem with my MBP before... it's definitely since the update. Any ideas?
