Sorry, I cannot tell from your post whether you added the Time Capsule to your network using wireless only....or whether the Time Capsule is connected to your wireless router correctly using an Ethernet cable.
Can you clarify on that, please?

If you are using windows then the latest firmware on the TC is less than great..
The very latest ones can no longer be flashed back to 7.5.2 but I would have a go.
If you are running Lion.. then this is Lion --TC connectivity issue.. most likely..
Ethernet will help.. wireless seems to introduce more issues.
I would be really interested if you are getting this happen with windows. As it would mean the issue is much broader than latest Mac OS.

Sorry, I'll add a little more amplifying info. I am using OSx lion. And the TC was added/connected wirelessly.
Sorry but still unclear as to the network structure.. you added the TC to main router using ethernet?? Then from Lion to the TC by wireless?? Is the TC in bridge?

.... And the TC was added/connected wirelessly.
Unfortunately, that is the problem.
This is not officially supported by Apple, so if you want to continue with this type of setup, we probably will not be able to provide much assistance other than offer general guidelines.....like make sure that the TC is in the same room as your wireless router so that it will get a good signal.
You double your chances of an error during backups when the TC connects using wireless only....even if you have a good wireless connection. Here's why:
The Mac has to connect to the wireless router....one hop...and then the wireless router has to send the wireless signal back to the TC....second hop. Not only does this increase the chance of an error occurring during a backup, it also takes much more time for the backup to occur.
We would strongly recommend that you connect the TC to your wireless router using a permanent Ethernet connection. Can you consider this type of configuration?

I have a similar/maybe the same problem.
I have just got a 2 TB time capsule with firmware 7.6.1. I am running 10.7.4 on a 2008 Macbook pro and using Airport Utility 6.1.
I connected the TC to an ethernet connection and create a wireless network with WPA2 wireless security. I also set the router mode to Off (Bridge mode) and the secure shared disk to "with device password".
I can ping "cd-tc.local", but when I try to connect the TC from the Finder or the Time Machine I get the following error:
"There was a problem connecting to the server "cd-tc.local".
I am getting a new MacbookPro, so I want to migrate to it from the time machine backup.

I've got the same issue. I'm using the Time Capsule as my wireless router, which is connected to my Virgin Superhub by an ethernet cable. No problems with my wifi interent connection. The AirPort Utility can find the Time Capsule with no issues.
But I get the same messages as the guys above when I try to connect through finder or through the Time Capsule options. It's been like this for over a month.
To be honest, I've had nothing but issues with my Time Capsule since I've had it. It doesn't do half the stuff I'd like it to, and essentially it's just a really expensive wireless router with a massive and pointless hard drive attached to it, that I can't store anything on.
Any advice to get it connecting again would be great.
