First off, can you ping that address? can you telnet that port?
Is it listening?

$ ping 192.168.x.x
$ telnet 192.168.x.x 22
$ netstat -an | grep LISTEN

If those tests work as expected, double check the ListenAddress parameter in 
your sshd_config, your /etc/hosts file, and then try running:

$ ssh -vvv [username]@192.168.x.xx

to see if you can find additional info to debug your problem.
