I have looked on the internet about  the useage of these commands:

But I don't know exactly in what circumstances I will need them. I heard that they are very useful in network troubleshooting.

any clarifications?

-nbtstat is a Microsoft command that allows you to see NetBios status on connections from your machine to others, what NetBios name your host has on the network, etc.
-arp is a command that lets you see what layer 3 IP addresses are bound to what layer 2 MAC addresses on your machine, and in your arp cache
-telenet is actually "telnet", and allows you to remotely connect to a host that accepts connections that way (typically, network devices or Unix workstations etc. that support command-line interfaces)

If you are running WinXP or 2000, you can search for those commands in Help, and it will give you a more detailed description of what they are on a Microsoft box.
