Airport Utility is crap IMO. It routinely fails to see base stations for configuring. Try restarting your Mac.

Also try manually finding it - using the utility, enter in the station's IP address.

Third option: connect directly to it over ethernet.

After reset, connect via ethernet (wired) and you should be golden. I'd jump to this option first as it's most likely to work with less overhead in terms of your time.
