Copying files from fedora 7 system stalls at max of 10 windows xp computers

I am a teacher trying to set up my own classroom network. I know there is a 5 computer limit to networking using xp home edition (which I have), thus I an using linux (Fedora 7) as a stand alone server to avoid the limitation. The linux box can SEE and access the windows computers and vice versa although I have to restart samaba to get the windows units to see it sometimes. Problem: I have tried to tranfer files from the linux box to the other computers, but only 10 transfers will occur simultaneously. When I attempt to get the 11th computer transfering, smb stalls until one of the other computers is finished. I this caused by a samba setting or a windows issue? Note: All the computers (14 of them) are networked wirelessly (linksys WRT54G) - I'm pretty sure this is not the problem.
