Maybe your router is choking on the no-more-sessions at openssh.com request.
Try commenting out this block in ssh.c:ssh_session2()

Otherwise, you might have to compile a ssh client with -DPACKET_DEBUG to
see what packet is making your router freak out. Note that you should not
send full PACKET_DEBUG output to the mailing list as it will include
hex-encoded passwords - make sure you only send packets after
authentication has completed.
