I have a Linksys cable/dsl router but perhaps your router is similar.
You need to tell the router which computer to send port 22 traffic.

Also, you need to allow outside access to the ssh service.

Also, read through the ssh man and info pages. You need to generate a key pair. If you have physical access to the remote machine, you can add your public key to the remote computers 'trustedhosts' file. Adding the remote computers public key to your own 'trustedhosts' file will allow connecting without entering a password if that is what you want to do.

Because your Linux box doesn't have a static (Internet) IP, so in order to make the ssh service available from the Internet, you need to configure your router. Usually this configuration is called "port forwarding" as what you want is that all the traffic for port 22 coming into your router should be forwarded to your Linux box. Port 22 ofcourse is for the ssh service. The port forwarding configuration would ask you for a port and IP address, for the port you would specify 22 and IP address will be that of the Linux box.
