Cisco 7206 allows telnet but no traffic or ping

As many others here.... I am new to Cisco: so here it goes.
- Cisco 7206 - 4 (8port) cards installed
--DeviceC1 --- DevD1....etc
--DeviceC2 --- DevD2....etc
DeviceA --- DeviceB ---<---DeviceC3 --- DevD3....etc
--DeviceC4 --- DevD4....etc
--DeviceC5 --- DevD5....etc
DeviceA - my laptop or any other device this side of 7206
DeviceB - Cisco 7206
DeviceC1-6 - Cisco 3745/3725 Routers configured as Multilinks

Basic Config points:
- 6 multilinks defined, 5 are working (all are 3745/3725)
- 1 of the 6 will not allow traffic (DevC5)
- 1 direct serial, also working
- Able to telnet to remote router 3745 (DevC5) only from 7206 (DevB)
- Able to ping to 3745 (DevC5) only if telnet into 7206 (DevB) first
- If 2 hops away at DevA, then DevC5 (3745) then it is not accessable.
- From DevB I can telnet into DevC5 or anyothers downstream (DevD5..etc)
- Cannot telnet into DevC5 except from DevB
- But all these things work fine with DevC1,DevC2,DevC3... etc...
- Only DevC5 is acting funny
- You can also ping back from DevC5 to DevB, but not to DevA
- Why is Multilink5 to (DevC5) not allowing traffic, but you can see it?

Sounds like maybe a QOS issue. Click the link above to see if this helps.

Also, could be a load balancing issue. Let me know if this helped.

Belkin N300 - CISCO Clean Access Agent

All configuration can be done with the router GUI.
Firewalls: Server Side Having a server side firewall is the typical configuration on many systems. There is only one method for doing this, whether you use telnet or ssh: map a port to be forwarded to the server in the firewall router. It is not advised that you use telnet from the Internet for security reasons; that is usually why you have a firewall.Decide which method of connectivity will be allowed, and determine what port you will use to forward to this service. If there is only one server involved, you can use port 22 for ssh or 23 for telnet and forward them straight through to the server. But if there are several servers involved and they do not have public IP addresses, you will need to pick different ports on the firewall router and let the router forward those ports to the different internal servers.

Do you have an example config of an ACL that will permit all traffic inbound / outbound but exclude telnet inbound / outbound?

all acl's have an "invisible" deny all statement at the end, so you construct your acl with the denied items first and then a "permit all" at the end.
I'm not familiar with the Motorola syntax, but a Cisco one would be as follows:
access-list 100 deny tcp any any eq 23
access-list 100 permit ip any any
the list is then applied to the interface.

Computers connected to a router can communicate with each other but computers can not ping the router

Find the option on ther routers web interface to allow ping (or ICMP) echos/responses.

It's a security thing on routers and Windows firewalls so that potential hackers cannot verify the existence of your equipment.

Not able to telnet to my home router (netgear WGR614V9)

You have to have telnet access enabled for all earlier revisions of wgr614. See : but bear in mind that v9 is not known officially to have a telnet CLI.

Cicso router 1841 not connecting to the internet

When using Public IP addresses on one interface, usually facing your ISP, and using Private IP addresses (AKA RFC 1918) on another interface, usually facing your LAN, one needs to utilize network address translation (NAT) in order to connect LAN computing resources to the Internet.
Cisco has a fantastic article on how to perform the necessary procedures on their web site.

Siements 5890 router

When you say HQ is that outside on the wan port trying to ping the Lan port?
Sometimes the router itself will respond to a ping but will not pass ping requests thru as the internal firewall can never be fully shutoff unless you are running your cisco switch as a DMZ 
also are you connecting your other pc's to the cisco or to the 5890.
Instead of shutting off the firewall completely try enabling bridge mode and give your cisco the outside IP addy.

Telnet is an application layer protocol. If you can telnet to the other router, then you do not have any network issues. However, the fact that you can telnet but not ping suggests that icmp messages have been blocked in the configuration of one or both routers. This is a security feature, because attacks can be launched via icmp messages.
