With Windows 8 I can't get Airport Utility versions 5.5.3 or 5.6.1 to recognize my airport express when wireless.  It can see it if I connect it to the computer with Ethernet.  Another computer with Windows 7 works just fine.  Any idease on how to fix this?

    We have seen a number of reports from users on this topic....with many more expected. The bottom line appears to be that Windows 8 is not fully compatible with any current AirPort Utility software.


    Hopefully, Apple will provide an udpated version for Windows 8 soon.

    I found a fix.  Bonjour services were not automatically downloaded.  So, I installed Bonjour and it seems to work now.  I also started running iTunes in compatibility mode with iTunes running in Windows XP service pack 3.
