    It looks like I had the same problem. After resetting my airport express several times the issue persisted. Then I rebooted my Windows 7 PC and restarted the Airport configuration utility.

    Then I got a message that my firewall was denying access to the Airport configuration utility and a question whether I wanted to allow the Airport configuration utility access? After confirming I was able to configure my Airport Express.

    TIP: before rebooting your PC, you might want to try starting the Airport configuration utility with Administrator privileges, by right mouse clicking the Airport configuration utility program icon.


    Good luck.
