Just bought a new Time Capsule. Setup went, apparently, well, and the wireless network is going like gangbusters.

BUT I can't get Time Machine to connect with Time Capsule using any of my (three) computers on the network. System Preferences/Time Machine sees it, and I choose it. Get a dialog box with my user name (already filled out) and space for a password. Type in the password, click OK. Get a message that "The user name or password are invalid." I've done this a dozen times. I've tried the short user name, the long user name, the name of the Time Capsule disk. I've used Air Port Utility to change the Time Capsule password to other things (I tried "me") so I could be sure I hadn't typed the wrong password. No joy, same message - invalid user name or password.

Anyone have any idea what's going wrong here?
