Bug#296811: ssh hangning caused by buggy ADSL modem firmware here

I resolved the problem here, buggy firmware is to be blamed: every
packet having the flag ToS!=0 is silently discarded.

More details: http://www.thp.uni-duisburg.de/~fred/DSL-G664T.html and

The end of http://www.abclinuxu.cz/hardware/show/112501 quotes the reply
from dlink support (copy and paste the relevant part):

The box is running Linux and netfilter mangling could do the trick on
the router; but mangling table is not compiled into the kernel in my
specific case (dlink dsl-g664t). So I have to mangle when packets leave
the client.
