    I have an Apple AirPort Extreme router connected to my Windows 7 laptop. It also connects all sorts of other devices all of which are working great.

    The router has been working fine, except now it does not find my hidden network. I have to connect through my guest network. When I search for the hidden network, I can find it but it won't connect even though I know the password entered is correct.

    I went into my AirPort Utility to change the settings that now says it "can't find any AirPort Utility devices. Make sure is in range and scan again. " The router is right next to my laptop so that is not an issue.

    Why can it not find my devices?

    I really would like to do a factory reset and change the whole network name and password and not make the network hidden this time.

    Is that as easy as it sounds?

    I can't find the original CD that came with the extreme but already have the AirPort Utility installed on my laptop, so it should just pick up the new installation - right???
