Have you already accessed it on another port like a serial port? This
shouldn't make a difference as I believe telnet should work regardless,
but it might.

Other than that, I suggest running an ethernet sniffer like tcpdump on
your host to see if the target is sending _anything_. I take it you've
confirmed that it thinks it's working, with good MAC address and IP.
