which internal machine are you forwarding to?

service iptables status
or
iptables -L -v 
(the v is verbose, which will include the interfaces too)

so that's not the problem.
neither, it would appear is tcp_wrappers (the hosts.allow/deny files)

This I believe is the issue here. ifconfig does not tell lies.
your eth0 device is currently set to 192.168.0.4.
Are you by any chance using your modem as a dhcp server?
incidentally, try (on your fedora box)
nmap -sP 192.168.0.0/24
which will tell you which machines are up with which ip addresses on your 
local network (it's a ping scan). You may need to install nmap first.
try ssh-ing to from your other host

you can reconfigure the interface (to what you expected) using netconfig:
netconfig -d eth0
set your ip address and the other bits
then do a service network restart.

then try ssh again.

no idea.
it's not difficult to turn off, however. See Matthew's post about this.
