I cannot in any way, shape or for, agree with that. My first Linux 
domain controller was working on production after a couple of weeks  of 
study, starting from about zero knowledge of Samba.

Reading your post, it seems to me that your problem lies with some 
misconfiguration on that router you are using between the Linux machine 
and the Windows machines.
