AirPort Admin Utility my AirPort Extreme did not display; the list of
AirPort's was empty. I had to use an IP address to configure it.
I did two things. Not sure which worked or if it was both together.
First, I'd turned off the AirPort option of ad hoc networks
(Rendezvous). I turned that back on and restarted.
Second, I used the AirPort admin utility to rename my AirPort.
Previously the AirPort had the same name as the wireless network --
both were "faughnan". I changed the AirPort name to something else.
After the name change the AirPort shows up again. It may have been an
effect of two different issues interacting.
