Installing and starting dropbear is usually not a big problem, being able to 
connect to it is a different story. 

It does not work for me if I just connect to the WLAN connection. I have to 
open a browser window for example in order for the connection to 
get "activated". Only after this I can ssh 

Also sometimes the ssh connections freeze up. I have to disconnect from the 
WLAN, then re-connect and open a browser window again in order to "unfreeze" 
my existing SSH connections or establish new ones.

Is there any way around this?
