Asp.net web telnet client problems

I am trying to create a telnet client that will connect to several of my network devices on campus and change settings on the devices. So far I can connect with the code below, but I can't seem to get the correct return data from the device. Sometimes I get about 100 bytes and other times I get 3000 bytes. I even put a thread sleep but that still give me different return data from different devices. I know I am going to have to use an asynccallback but I just don't know how to do that. Any help would be great. I have also tried to use networkstream.dataavailable but this still is sporatic data.
