computers (even using their IP's). (I can access these computers from
another laptop running Fedora 8 through the same wireless router.)

How can I determine what is going wrong? I've tried disabling the
firewall completely (although it always seems to come on by itself) to
see if it was blocking ssh. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First you never need to open a port for an outward connection.
The firewall is not the issue here.

Check your /etc/ssh_config
It should have the following lines uncommented
ForwardX11 yes
ForwardX11Trusted yes
----The above two are optional but if you trust the remote host its ok
Protocol 2

You might also try Protocol 2,1
but 1 is deprecated.

You may want to add these lines (they should be the default)
RSAAuthentication yes
PasswordAuthentication yes
HostbasedAuthentication no
GSSAPIAuthentication no
