vba macro to parse column for value in cell and copy text from cell to different sheet

Hello Experts,

I need to parse each row in column A of the sheet "Data" and look for the text "ip route"
if the cell contains the text, I want to further check and see if the gateway IP address (the last IP in the cell) is equal to the IP address from cell B1 of the "Inputs" sheet.
if it does contain the same gateway IP, i want to create a new sheet called "output", copy the entire cell twice to the new sheet and prepend the text "no" to the first copy, and replace the gateway IP address (last IP in the cell) with the address contained in cell b4 of the input sheet in the second copy.  Please see attached spreadsheet for example data and example output
