12 A note: usually wireless networks use DHCP for dynamically allocating
13 IP-Adresses to the different clients. If you want to maintain an
14 ssh-server on a machine connected to a wireless network that uses DHCP[1],
15 you will have to tell the router to forward port 22 (or whatever other port)
16 to your particular machine.
18 Sorry if I'm telling you something you may already know, but it's a way too
19 common mistake ;-)

24 [1] If you don't know whether or not you use DHCP, you probably do. I
25 understand you're from Germany - I'm pretty sure most ISPs in Germany
26 use PPPoE for wired and DHCP for wireless to connect their ADSL clients.
