What happens if you shut down your computer and leave it off?
If you power down and restart the AirPort Express while leaving the computer off, can any other devices connect now?
If yes, which one?
Was the one that connected the first one that you tried?

We previously tried that and only the MacBook stills connects. We also have another MacBook in the house and that will not connect either. All devices that cannot connect to the internet are saying they have a self addressed IP address and cannot connect. Is it possible that the router portion of the Time Capsule may be bad?

Sorry, I am confused. Your first post mentioned an AirPort Express as your router and now you are asking about the Time Capsule as a router.
Which device is performing routing duties on your network?
Can you tell us something about the modem that the provider has furnished? A make and model number might help us try to understand how you have the network configured.

Sorry for the confusion. It is the Time Capsule that is being used to connect to the internet not Airport Express. Any ideas? I know it has to do with the devices not being assigned an IP address by the Time Capsule, but cannot figure out how to resolve this.

Thanks for the clarification.
Can you tell us something about the modem that the service provider has furnished? A make and model number might help us understand the capabilities of this device and whether or not it is fully compatible with the Time Capsule.

This appears to be a standard cable modem, but when I enter the exact model number on a search to learn more about this, I get Internet pages in Japanese. I will have to assume that this is the same basic model as a normal SB5101 Motorola.
Do you have a Mac there with AirPort Utility installed?
AirPort Utility is located as follows:
Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
If yes, open AirPort Utility, click the AirPort Utility menu just to the right of the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen and then click About AirPort Utility. What version of AirPort Utility do you have?

Open AirPort Utility, select the Time Capsule and click Manual Setup
Click the Internet icon, then click the Internet Connection tab
Connect Using should read Ethernet
Connection Sharing should read Share a public IP address. If it does not, change it to read as such
Click Update and wait 30 seconds for the Time Capsule to restart
Power off the cable modem, Time Capsule and all other network devices
Wait 10 minutes
Power up the modem first and let it run by itself for a full minute
Power up the Time Capsule the same way
Power up other devices the same way until everything is powered back up
Check the network again to see if multiple devices can connect.
