I have EXACTLY the same error for EXACTLY the same length of time. I have found that my system behaves like yours and that this window pops up as you have indicated. The only difference, obviously is the name of the time capsule device. Mine is called Tim's Time Capsule. I have loaded the latest Time Capsule firmware yesterday and this made no difference to the problem, I do know that it is widespread and that is is irritating.
Hopefully someone in the community has a solution to the problem!
Best Wishes and comisserations.

OK. What fixed mine & I did this unintentionally. I have another External Western Digital Hard Drive Connected. I downloaded the Drive Manager for that Drive from Western Digital & now no trouble. Perhaps that drive was interferring with the Time Capsule Drive somehow. Again, I'm not sure. But since I installed the WD Drive Manager, I have not had the issue. My luck when ever I say or write something like this, it'll come back. :-(

I kept getting the same error then I woke up to the "Drive Failure" error message and a yellow light. Applecare replaced the TC drive but I lost 500gbs of movies and music along with hours of attempts to organize the library. Music was backed up but the labor was not...back to starting over and wondering if the TC should be anything more than an expensive backup drive.

Adam, that is a Nightmare. I have my entire iTunes on mine but I have it all backed up to another drive.I thought the HD thay use for Time Capsule is above normal standard. How old was yours when this happened. Mine is way past Warranty. Just goes to show, ALL hard drives die. That must have been a lot of work for you. At least they replaced the TC.

I had solved this problem by reverting back to the previous firmware. whatever the latest firmware update was, it appears to cause this problem. Problem that I have now is that the firmware was accidentally updated by someone else in my house and now the interface has changed on the airport utility and I can't figure out how to revert to the previous firmware. I'm open for help on that one. It was pretty easy in the old airport utility.

Download 5.6 airport utility for lion.. v6 is a pretty face and little more.
I tested both 7.6 and 7.6.1 ie latest firmware and keep getting the issue with SL.. went back to 7.5.2 and it stopped so the bug fix in 7.6.1 still hasn't fixed it.

Did all that and it worked for a bit right before the hard drive crashed. Got the new TC today and trying to decide to try again as a data drive or strictly a backup drive.

It will still kick up server disconnected messages even if in bridge.. the issue has to do with the way AFP works some changes that were made. So even if the TC has fixed IP and no longer routes internet it still will have issues. But I find not on 7.5.2 unless there really is a network problem.. For a data store or backup there is no need to use the latest firmware AFAIK.. even Lion should work fine with earlier firmware. Even!!

I have just installed a new 4th generation Time Capsule, and have the same [what I thought initially was just a nuisance] 'Server Connections Interrupted' popup window appearing very frequently.
Here is the Popup window:
Worse; when I began the process of backing up 105GB of data from my NAS RAID 1 set up to the new Time Capsule (TC), the copying process is failing part way through [typically deep down in the Folder Structure] which as you can image is a real pain, a hopeless situation really…
Here is the Copy Faiure message:
The TC setup is simple, WiFi turned Off, DHCP, Bridge Mode. Connected directly by Ethernet to iMac and the NAS, and the WAN Ethernet port to an AirPort Extreme.
I also note a strange entry in the TC Airport Utility 'Logs and Statistics'…
Every five minutes, there is a Severity:5 message, an AFP Login, instantly closed?
Feb 25 12:13:56 Severity:5 AFP login OK from Robert Mclnnes@10.0.1.2.
Feb 25 12:13:56 Severity:5 AFP session from Robert Mclnnes@10.0.1.2 closing.
Feb 25 12:18:57 Severity:5 AFP login OK from Robert Mclnnes@10.0.1.2.
Feb 25 12:18:57 Severity:5 AFP session from Robert Mclnnes@10.0.1.2 closing.
10.0.1.2 is my iMac
What on earth is this log about, is it related to the failure of the copying of the backup files from NAS to TC...
I am in a desperate situation right now, since I am unable to continue with the backup and restructure of iPhoto and iTunes libraries, which are all resident on the NAS RAID 1 setup.
Am replacing all of the Ethernet cables involved, incase this is simply a 'bad connection'.
Would appreciate some feedback from anyone who may have cracked this issue...
Take note Apple, this is awful!… All my other stuff, prior to this incident, an Airport Extreme, an older Time Capsule as WiFi extension and storage, Airport Express, Macmini, works like a charm…

Wow. I had no idea how many people had Problems with their TC's. Off topic but my 2 TB RAID MyBook just died. Someone needs to make a hard drive that'll last a good 10 years. It's only 2 Years Old.

Ditto. Started in last couple months.
Have 7.6.1 firmware on TIme Capsule
Problem occurs on both MacBook PRo over WiFi & Mac Mini over ethernet.
Mini runs iTunes which points to iTunes folder located on the TC. This has led to corruption of iTunes libary.
MacBook Pro is not able to backup to TC because it can't find the "sparsebundle" reliably.
So you might want to make backups of your iTunes database, and make sure your TC backups are not failing.
