This means that the code on line 169 in TelnetIOSPing.pm didn't get the
reply it was expecting from the router. Looking at the code, the
conversation isn't very far yet. It's sending the command "ping"
and expecting a dialog with "Protocol [ip]: "

     $telnet->waitfor('/Protocol \[ip\]: $/');

Try to do the same interactively by telnetting into the router
and see if you can spot the problem.

As mentioned in its documentation, the TelnetIOSPing.pm contains some
code for debugging the conversation.  I have never used it, but it looks
like just uncommenting the last three lines here:

     my $telnet = Net::Telnet->new();
#               These are for debugging
#               $telnet->errmode("TIPreturn");
#               $telnet->input_log("TIPinlog");
#               $telnet->dump_log("TIPdumplog");

and running 'smokeping -debug' again should give you those files in the 
current directory. Try to see if you can find anything in them.

Hope this helps,
