Could someone please let me know how to use Terminal.app as telnet. I am trying to access a router that uses telnet. Everything I have tried so far is not working.

you should rather use ssh.

He's trying to access a router (most likely one physically in the vicinity of his machine) that uses the telnet protocol... not ssh.
