Routing with win 98

I have a small network in a grade school with 30 computers in a "computer room" of the school. 1 of the computers is a windows 2003 server. I have 10 (grades pre - 8)rooms with 3 computers each in them. Ethernet line comes off of switch in the "computer room" and goes to each classroom where it connects to a Linksys BEFSR41 router. The 3 computers in each room connect to the router. Problem is that the computers, when connected to the router in each room, are able to reach the internet, but they are not able to see the Windows 2003 server in Network Neighborhood. If I remove the router and plug one of the computers directly into the ethernet, the pc sees the Windows 2003 server in network neighborhood and is able to reach the internet. Am I missing a setting on my routers in each room, or is there something in win98 I need to set up. Any help is much appreciated.

Re: Routing with win 98

All of the computers in the rooms should be connected to a common switch, not a router - then everything will work fine.
