Given a network topology as in this diagram, which would be the usual
way of connecting up a home router,

Client 1 Client 2 Client 3
with port forwarding of port 22 to, say Client 2, there is no way
that any software running on Client 1 or Client 3 can interfere with
ssh connections to Client 2. Indeed, in a switched architecture,
which is what you have in your tupical ADSL hpme router thingie,
Client 1 or Client 3 don't even see packets destined for Client 2.
So, the only answer I can think of is that you don't have the
topology above, and instead have something like this

Windows Client 1 Client 2 Client 3
where the router is connected directly to the Windows box (maybe via
USB ?) and Client 1/2/3 are connected to the Windows box via Ethernet
and are then accessing the internet via the Windows box using its
internet connection sharing, because in that case all the packets for
Client 1/2/3 go through the Windows box and will be affected by its

ssh -X remote_ip (or ssh -Y remote_ip for a secure connection) will
get you a tunnelled X connection, so presuming you have a local X
server, and aren't using putty or some such, you can start a X client
on the remote machine which will display on your local server.
However, you'll need to provide more details as to what you want to
do. Gnome is a bit more than an X client, and getting a gnome desktop
displaying remotely is possible in a number of ways (remote X, VNC,
NX) and you need to decide which to use.
