Most likely your router can't handle the necessary network traffic for 4 players.

Are any of the computers using the wireless feature of the router? If that's the case, try plugging them directly into the router and trying again. Wireless, while it gets the job done for home computing, usually end up being an awful idea for LANs and the like. The wireless, generally, yields slower transfer rates for a single computer. When you factor two or more computers using wireless, it generally ends up being a bad time.

Previously, during LANs, I would have 8 or more people connected through a HUB, which actually sends each signal to everyone every time. It makes internet browsing and gaming terrible. I would still prefer that over any sort of wireless network though. :-\
