Well, here is an update to anyone who may also have difficulties with the Time Capsule and Windows. Dell: Unistalled the Linksys card and installed a D-Link. No more blue screen, but no internet even though an IP was assigned. Changed the encryption to WPA from WEP and it worked. HP with Intel PRO/Set 2100: Removed the Intel connection software and let Windows handle wireless connections. Now it worked. HP PDA: Still no luck. Am I the only one with Windows issues?
I am having similar issues with TWO separate TC units, a 500GB and a 1TB one at different locations. Everything works fine except there always is a rogue Windows laptop that sees the network, but is simply unable to connect to it. The signal is strong, but nothing happens after entering the WPA/WPA2 password. I've tried different configurations, WEP and all kinds of things - no luck.
All the macs on the network are able to connect well. But the IBM ThinkPad T41 just won't connect. Same for another Fujitsu-Siemens laptop at another place, who was able to connect up until I re-installed XP. Now it's the same issue. Can see the network, but can't connect.

I have also the problem of connecting my Windows xp to a Time Capsule.
I've tried with a Linksys wireless "n" card and my computer always hangs up just when it connects to the network. No problems with other router.
Then I tried with another card, just an USB D-Link wireless "b/g" card and it connects OK. But i want to use the speed of the Time Capsule, not just 54 mbps.
No problem with my iMac.
Just a suggestion, as I have had problem finding my TC after installing Parallels 2.5, and Windows XP. Couldn't work out for life of me why I couldn't find the TC but I could connect to the internet. Then i had a lightbulb moment!
Have you installed Airport Utility? Did this, lo and behold, there's my TC!!!
