If I understood correctly, what you ran just opened a connection, but passed
no data for two minutes. Is it possible that your router simply disconnects
inactive TCP connections after two minutes, in the pretext of saving memory,
guard against DOS attacks, or who knows what?

You can try setting ServerAliveInterval in your client to something less than
two minutes, and see if it helps. E.g., in your ~/.ssh/config put

	ServerAliveInterval 60
