Airport Utility on windows 7 does not work

I have 2 windows 7 64bit machines connected to a time capsule.  One connects to the time capsules drive without error.  The other does not.  Both get an IP address and are connected to the LAN and Internet.  The error on entering the password on the machine that does not work is:

could not connect to the disk.  Make sure NETBIOS is enabled and try again (53).

I have both network adapters setup exactly the same way.

Any ideas?

Check to see that netbios is enabled:
Click on the Network and Sharing Center
Click Manage Network Connections.
Right click on the Local Area Connection select Properties.
Select Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
Click the Advanced button under the General tab.
Click the WINS tab.
Click Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP.
Click OK and Exit the settings.

Turn off the firewall.  If that fixes it, you need to change the settings on the firewall to allow for netbios.  If it does not, I have a cludgy fix:
open notepad with admin privileges
open C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
put in the ip number and name of the other pc, i.e.
192.168.0.15    badpcbad

save, close, and try to connect.
