Since you use Cisco router you probably have a fair amont of network knowladge.
1. Make sure that all Macs are on the same LAN behing the Time Capsule (LAN side not WAN side). Also it helps if the Time Capsule is the DHCP server on the network. I suspect youmay have your Cis co doing this.
2. Make sure the time capsule is up to date - it should be if you do not ignore update messages on the Mac you run Airport to configure the TC.
3. In the Airport utility go to the Disk tab and enable File Sharing. Ideally password protected but not essential if you feel safe.
Provided you have all this sorted it shoudl work.
I have seen networks with Cisco routers where Apple computers where struggling to find themselves. This is down to broadcast issue Cisco / Apple.
But properly configured it should work.

I would offer slightly different advice to TZ.. but not claiming I am right.
I presume the Cisco is the main router for the network.. the TC should therefore be in bridge mode. And definitely not the DHCP server.
But your dhcp server in the Cisco can be set to fairly short lease time.. to keep ARP tables up to date.. that can help. For instance use 20min lease not 1 day or 1 week.
In the normal TC setup Apple suggests names that are not suitable to most network standard.. and I suspect increasingly even their own.. names with spaces and characters like apostrophe.. are illegal.
So use all SMB network names.. short no spaces pure alphanumeric.. and this includes TC name, wireless names and hard disk name.
to be continued.
