I am using an MBP and last week bought a Time Capsule. TC is connected to my Virgin Broadband account, and the MBP connects wirelessly.

The set up went fine as did the initial backup and the subsequent hourly back ups for about 24 hours. But now they are failing regularly and each time I get the "Backup volume cannot be found" message. If I then override the automatic process and click 'backup now' then it goes ahead successfully without fail. But very regularly the automatic backups then fail again.

Does anyone know what causes this?

At first I thought it was because my computer was connecting to another wireless network in the house so I corrected that by dropping the other network way down the list of networks. But now it's just failed again and, at the time, was definitely on the Apple/TC wireless network.

I'd be grateful for any help!! Many thanks.
