I would suspect the problem lies with your range extender rather than with the Denon.
There are some subtle but significant differences between internet radio and airplay that might be confusing your wireless gear. In the case of internet radio, the Denon is going out and making a direct connection to the server on the internet. For air play, the Denon sends out multicast packets to advertise itself (What Apple once called "Bonjour") and then the iPad makes a connection to the Denon to send the audio.
Anyhow, what all this gobblygook means is that the wireless extender is getting confused after a while and dropping the Airtunes advertisements from the Denon, which is why it doesn't show up on your iPad. What brand/model are you using?
