Per suggestions elsewhere on this site, I tried renaming the Time Capsule and it's disk.
When I did that I got this error:
The backup disk could not be found.
Make sure the backup disk is connected or open Time Machine preferences to select a different backup disk.

It is just poor networking on Mountain Lion.. reboot the whole network.. modem.. wait 2min.. Router or TC.. wait 2min then the client computers.
Does it now find the disk??
If not you need to connect and redo the setup using ethernet.
Set wireless to smb standard.. ie short name.. no spaces pure alphanumeric. but it will still need to occasionally reboot the TC..

Having the same problem - rebooting works but thank can't be the solution.
I got the time machine because of its automatic backups.
Apple - where is the solution! This must be a software issue!

My solution until Apple fixes this glitch:
I put a timer on my power supply. It "unplugs" time capsule every night from midnight until 5 am, thereby resetting itself and avoiding the whole issue.
I'm not awake those hours to be using it anyway, so it doesn't interrupt anything, and as an added bonus, it saves a bit if electricity every night.
