Need more info...

What is the drive hooked up to (computer, router...)? How are the computers connected to the network? Are they Macs, PC's? How have you set up sharing? How is the drive formatted (FAT32, NTFS...?)

I had the same problem, then I upgraded the firmware - go to the Apple website and make sure you're running the current version for the basestation.
