comment How can I get telnet to auto login to this piece of equipment?
I get a menu that looks like its made in curses. I sadly cannot show that since it has info on it that is sensitive.

comment How much of a difference is there between video card manufacturers?
@ernie technically that would be more accurate.

OK so there is truly more to it that just connecting to chip to a board? I really have to stop listening to computer store sales pitches. I was not sure if other than overclocking the cards really had much difference. Thanks.

comment What would cause a computer to fail to make any high level network connections?
So it looks like NOD32 missed something or was being disabled. I ran MalwareBytes from herin's boot cd and I found 21 things that were crawling around. Got rid of them but still needed a system repair because something was damaged.

No, 255.255.255.0 is a subnet MASK. The subnet would be 192.168.1.0. But anyhow the system is working again a repair installed fixed it. Case closed!

I ran malwarebytes and it found things. But when I tried to get on the internet with a browser or update anything the connection still failed.

@and31415 Not sure about Linux, but when I run in WinPE the networking operates just fine. It is something specific with that Windows installation.

I did not run MalwareBytes, because the machine has a paid AV (NOD32) on it. While I did not consider malware as possibility I will return to the possibility and try running MalwareBytes. If suspect viruses I usually do run that. I ran NOD32 sys rescue CD/USB in WinPE mode. That way NOD32 has 100% access to the FS nothing is locked or in use. In that mode the system was able to connect and download updates from the update server. NOD32 found nothing.

@Rudolph The type of router is a WRT54G-v6 with DD-WRT firmware. The DNS servers are set to OpenDNS, I have also used Google Public DNS.

@Ramhound What I am referring to is anything higher than ICMP protocol.
