D-link isdn router not doing its job?

I am trying to set up a classroomful of iMacs/eMacs (26 in all) to share access to the internet via ethernet, twisted-pair cables, centercom hub, D-Link isdn router, DHCP and isdn line. Although any one machine at a time on the room network can access the internet with ease we always quickly encounter "connection failure" meltdown for all users as soon as one or two other machines attempt to engage in simultaneous internet access. Sometimes I've tried switching the router off and on again and this gets things working again for a short time, typically less than one minute, before the same fate befalls us once more. Our router supplier replaced the router but the new one is just as ineffective. Any easy answers? (ISP is eircom net in Ireland)

ISDN was kind of a strange technology and I would imagine an ISDN router even weirder. Is there any chance for DSL? It's probably cheaper than what you're paying for ISDN, significantly faster, and much more suitable for this type of use.

Can you assign static IP addresses to all the machines? How fast is the ISDN line? It could be that you're just overloading it, and the latency becomes so great that connections time out.
