Your system is probably trying to look up host names in DNS.
Investigate the UseDNS setting in sshd_config on the server to
control this in sshd.

For route, try route -n

Also it does not make sense to have default router set to the local
IP address. If a system should not have a default route, it is best
to not set one.
