Re: ssh problem
i suggest you try to find where is the mtu problem coming from because you might have issues connecting to different servers which drop ICMP
don't forget to make your change permanent to avoid reboot problems if you don't fix the issue :)

net.ipv4.ip_no_pmtu_disc = 0
setting ifconfig eth0 mtu 1280
does seem to help and solves the immediate problem, i have a working
connection again. Thanks ;)
not sure what i did to ***** this up, actually no idea what the MTU
actually does apart from what i read on google the last ten minutes.
