It might be easier to make a button to represent this than to 
capture it.

A telnet break is 129, I think.  Is that what you need?

Do you think you need a full telnet to talk to a router?  Maybe you

(BTW, my router won't let me recover from a lost password via tcp 
telnet; I have to use the serial connection.)
