1. Open AirPort Utility (Applications-->Utilities)
2. Select your base station from the list on the left.
3. Click Manual Setup
4. Click the blue icon labeled "Disks" at the top of the utility screen.
5. Make sure your disk shows up, click "File Sharing".
6. Check "Enable File Sharing". Choose settings as desired. Restart base station.
Once the base station has restarted, from your Mac's Finder window:
1. Select "Go" --> "Network"
2. Your base station should show up under a "Shared" option.
3. Double click it and your hard drive should show up now and be recognized by your mac.
4. Open up Time Machine and "Choose Backup Disk". The wireless drive should now show up for you.
This is how I got it to work for me. Good luck!
