smb client

if the linux router has the smb client then you can have a script along the lines of

<shell script>
#filename netsend

echo $2 | smbclient -M $1

#example: ./netsend MACHINE don't forget your money
</shell script>

You should easily be able alter this to send to everyone you want it to.
