Haven't answered because had nothing to contribute..
But I am surprised if you run Mavericks.. what I have seen is that it is supposed to default to SMB.
Maybe I am reading it the wrong way.
The issue I heard was later version of SMB is a problem and people were recommending to use CIFS.. rather than SMB which is later SMB2.
Any earlier version of OS would default to AFP for connection to a TC.. so I am surprised if Mavericks has an issue with AFP and not SMB.
Yes i have read all the stuff about the default smb in Mavericks but mine mounts with afp in default. I now mount the volume manually throught Go-->Connect to Server option in Finder.I write smb://192.168.1.1 and it mounts the time capsule and no problems. I dont want to do this anytime, I want all the things to work right...
I hope an update will fix it
Thank you for your reply and i will leave feedback but i dont think that will someone see and solve this...
