Are you using Windows XP Home?

If you are you cannot have anymore than 10 machines on one workgroup.

I would suggest changing your hubs to switches and using Windows XP Professional.

Hubs are not very good at all. The more you have plugged into it, the slower the network goes, if you have a swtich every computer will get full speed.
