Unto itself, viruses are rare when directly looking at the wifi router. When a computer can't contact a reliable source that means that the computer has a flaky or unstable connection (akin to out of range or static on the FM transmitter on your favorite radio station)
Windows PC's have some very very dumb drivers and some will force the card into 802.11b mode by default which is not supported as well by the newest routers. (because it's a really old and slow transmission standard) I can demo how to enable "g" mode also.
Are you having 20 connections to a single home-level wifi router? (if so, that is your problem) Especially if this isn't a MIMO router...
What version of windows are on all of your 20 computers? Or do you have mac/linux too?
What is the make/model of the wifi router(s) in question
What is the speed/provider of your internet connection?

If you are unable to run an update and scan with your current antivirus and are being prevented from installing anything new, I would suggest booting from a rescue CD (make 20 copies) from Kaspersky:
or the Microsoft System Sweeper
