Time Capsule HELP

I'm a friend of Jerry Freilich in Bend and he said someone might have an answer for me.

Just got a NEW 3 Terabyte Time Capsule, set it up and started Time Machine. All worked well for a couple of days/backups and then the Disk cannot be found. The Wi-Fi is still distributed fine but no Disk availability. I restart the Time Capsule and it works well again for a day and then the disk cannot be found again. What to do, why is it loosing the connection. I have another time Capsule set up the same way and it works fine?

I just had a similar problem when I replaced one of the two external drives I use for Time Machine.

I did solve the problem, but I'm not sure my situation is similar enough to yours to be worth repeating my steps. Here, though, are Apple's suggestions:
