Question RedHat Network Monitor Hangs @ LogIn

Hello, every time I log-in the FedoraCore 3 splash window checks the RHN Network Monitor and hangs for at least 1 minute. It never used to do this until I brought my box over to my friends and plugged in different hardware, his keyboard,mouse & monitor & cable modem.
Also I am unable to configure the RHN using any gui interface because none of the System Settings will launch either.
As well, I am unable to telnet to localhost which is the original problem which caused the new problem.
In a console window with su access I get this:
[root@ab /]# telnet localhost
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
[root@ab /]#

notice that my host name is root@ab instead of root @
is this part the whole problem?

Please help if you can.

This sounds like there are a few problems going on...

I am assuming your using eth0 and that eth0 is up, and you can see it when doing

bash$ ifconfig

You might want to run

bash$ dhclient eth0

if you are getting a dhcp address... check /etc/resolv.conf to make sure that you don't have some other namserver in there that you aren't using.

post the output of

bash$ route

and we'll work from there...

and just to be sure... is telent on?

bash$ chkconfig --list | grep telnet

Hello, thankyou for responding
Ok so here are the results:

; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
I am not sure how many or even which one is correct. Should I give my ISP a call?

[root@ab ~]# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth0
default d161-184-112-1. UG 0 0 0 eth0

[root@ab ~]# chkconfig --list | grep telnet
krb5-telnet: off
So it is off, that is a good thing because it explains that problem. How do I turn it on from a console?
