    It's very strange, the airport utility on my iPad doesn't not recognize my AirPort Extreme even though it is clearly connected to the network, but the utility on my iPhone sees it just fine. Any ideas?

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) Please provide information on your iPad model and iOS version installed - might be helpful. Of course, with the Airport Utility opened on your iPad, the attached screen capture below is what would be expected - what exactly are you seeing?

    For starters, you can 'Force Close' the app and then re-open; if that maneuver does not help, I would 'Reset' the iPad and power recycle your modem and the Airport Extreme router - if those suggestions are unsuccessful, then delete and reinstall the utility app - let us know if any of these procedures works - directions below for several of the iPad suggestions.

    Tried all three things to no result. Changed the settings I needed to from my phone and figured I would deal with it later. Went away for a few days and came home today and everything is now back to normal. Guess the iPad just needed to forget that it forgot so it could remember.
