Buffalo Terestation NAS AD problems

I have a Buffalo Terestation NAS on my network and have had nothing but problems since i put it in.

Sometimes users are able to connect and sometimes they are not.

There are about 3000+ users/groups in my domain, so i already know joining it directly to the Domain is out because it will only handle 1000 AD objects. So i tried to Delegate Authority to External SMB Server and it worked for a while but now every time somone tries to go to the Auto Authentication share it locks their account out.

I'm not sure whats going on and really need some help trying to figur out why this thing is being so dumb haha

The time is +/- 5 seconds and the date is correct
Workgroup is set to the domain name (well as close as i can get because it won't allow me to put .local at the end)
Wins server is set to our wins server and the Authentication server name is set to our main DC.

I'm thinking that it may be a security issue or a setting that may have changed within the domain recently but i don't know where to start.

if anyone could just give me a nudge in the right direction that would be great.

1) Do you have the latest firmware/OS on your NAS ?

2)  Is it possible that too many people are  trying to access it simultaneously ?

It simply may not be  sufficient for what you actually need.

have you seen this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942564
also are you using the most current firmware, is your NAS using Microsoft Windows® Storage Server 2003 R2 Express Edition ?

@SysExpert
I think you may be right about this no longer being sufficient. Do you have a manufacturer that you would reccomend?

I would like it to be able to join an active directory domain with ease and it needs to have the support to see and access the 3000+ users and groups on the domain. so basicly the oppisit of this terestation ;)
