If possible, you can track this possibility down (since "only" 4 pcs are in
the 
suspect pool), by disconnecting them one at a time and seeing if the others
come up.  Alternately you could disconnect them all and reconnect them
one at a time (e.g., if its possible more than one card is bad).

We had a similar signal strength issue at a former workplace; I found out
that
printers 'suck up' roughly twice as much signal strength as a dumb
terminal. 
In our case, the 'fix' was to not hook more than one printer to any given
port.
