Okay, I bridged the modem and router. Now I'm getting a timed out connection to the ssh request.

Nevermind. Everything is working. I forgot to put in the new ip address that the router was assigned.

is this just on a lan or are you trying to access from anywhere? I only wonder because the static ip address you listed seems to be local. meaning you wont be able to access it over the internet unless your in your lan.
