The higher the encryption, the more bandwidth it will take (and CPU) to 
process the packets. What are the specs of the server right now? Have 
you watched the CPU graph while all the clients are connected to see if 
it's maxed out for some reason? What encryption level (40 bit, 128 bit, 
etc) were you using before? Any QoS affecting things in this network setup?

There are a lot of variables in this setup, hard to say exactly what the 
issue may be.
