I am having pretty much the same problem and have recieved no real help on here. I got it to work once by joining my workgroup, but quit working for some unexplained reason. Here is a link to the other topic that goes through joining you workgroup:
I had the same problem,
1- install the new airport software from the apple web site, under downloads on the mac
2-in the airport utility under manual setup / go to disk / check enable file sharing / under workgroup type in MSHOME
4- on the pc in control panel / performance and maintenance / system / computer name / change workgroup to MSHOME
5- remove existing windows airport software
6- pc go to step 1 / apple web site download airport software for windows / install / password access should be same as the airport disk utility
the apple web site downloads are an updated version, this was what I did with a little help from everyone here on this discussion. My Daughter uses the pc for college and the backup with norton 360 works great.
Let me know how it works out
the particular workgroup should not matter, so what you have is fine. I'm going to assume all of your computers are configured correctly and give you a technique if this is true:
on your windows machine, click on START > RUN (or hold down windows key and hit R)
now type: \\10.0.1.1 (use the IP address of your Time Capsule)
it will ask you for a user name and password -- put in the name of your Time Capsule, and the password for your disks / printer
This will bypass the common windows buffoonery and bring it down to the networking basics. Hopefully, if you use this technique, it will bring up a window with a list of what you are looking for on the Time Capsule. Hope it helps!
