Are you connecting to the TC from your computer using an ethernet connection?
If not, connect an ethernet cable from your computer to one of the LAN <-> ports on the Time Capsule and try it again.
If you continue to have difficulties, you may need to do a Factory
Power off the TC for 5-10 minutes
Hold in the reset button and keep holding it while you plug the power back in to the TC
Keep holding the reset button until you see the amber light begin to flash more quickly.
Then try to reconfigure the TC, again using the ethernet connection. Please post back on your results.

I have tried to configure it both through an ethernet connection and a wireless, with no difference. I have also tried different computers.
I will attempt a factory reset, although I'd be suprised if it works seeing as I just bought it 3 days ago and did minimal configuring to it. I'll let you know if it makes any difference.
Thanks for the reply.
I will download Airport Utility again and try that if the factory reset does not work.
Just to verify, are these the latest versions of the software?
Airport Utility 5.5.1
Time Capsule Version 7.5.1
I did do the factory reset, and so far have had normal access through the Airport Utility. I'll try again a little later and see if it is still working.
This is an update to this discussion, 2 months later now.
It unfortunately never completely went away, but I stopped dealing with it because I don't need to use the airport utility ever and the network works flawlessly. The problem persists as a visible but inaccessible time capsule which becomes accessible after a restart of the time capsule, but then inaccessable again after some seemingly random amount of time (anywhere from a few minutes to days) where I do not try to access its configuration menus.
I'm not too concerned about a solution, but I thought I'd update the thread and put the info out there.
