There does not seem to be a built in Telnet client for Emacs. I am using Windows 7. I would either like to run:

M-x TELNET

: or I would like to run "telnet" from shell or eshell

You can combine eshell with tramp. In eshell, use cd /telnet:host.example.com:/remote/path to browse a remote directory. (Do you really want telnet and not ssh?)

I'm not sure if Windows's telnet.exe utility would work in a M-x term buffer. Windows terminals (consoles) behave differently from unix terminals (ttys), and emulating a Windows console inside a program is difficult. The Cygwin telnet program would work, though (and so would the Cygwin ssh program).
