ssh into hosts times out too quickly

When ssh'ing into a remote host through a cerowrt router, idle ssh connections seem to stop working. This happens when the connection is idle for what seems like a rather short time.
I added this to /etc/rc.local, and the problem went away:
sysctl -w net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_established=432000
This sets a 5 day close time. This is probably insane, but works well for me so far. Of course, I've only had the box in play for 1.5 days...

You are doing great stuff.
I use ipv6 mostly, which never times out. I will add that to the default sysctl.conf in the rc6 build
