Light Not Hitting Objects

I am doing a night alley scene, and when i put in some lights, the light hits the ground but not the walls, dumpsters, etc. I am using spotlights. I have raytraced shadows on as well if that makes a difference.
Any help would be much appreciated. I'll post a rendered screenshot if you guys don't see what i mean.

Are you sure they are connected through light linking?

I checked and even re-did the linking. Still not working...
