Multiple Xboxes on a network problem.

I'm trying to set up a small network for some friends of mine. They have 2 xboxes (not 360s) and just got broadband internet specifically for Xbox Live. I picked up router (a LinkSys WRT54G
). They previously had the xbox system link bundle (4 port hub and 4 cables). Then came the problems (after the jump).

I set up the Linksys router with the broadband and could connect to the internet fine. However, once I hooked up one of the xboxes, they couldn't connect to Live (a task they could do without the router in the way).
After several iterations of testing, it appears that for some reason both xboxes can't connect to Live at the same time.
The current setup is:
Cable modem -> WRT54G Router -> System Link hub -> (Via System Link cable) -> both xboxes.
Why isn't this working? Has anyone got 2 xboxes (both with their own live account) woking on a single network and have both of them online at the same time?
