fixed!

eventually fixed the weird problem

disabled the onboard lan in the bios of the Asus P4C800 motherboard
fitted an old network card
ran game and connected to excal first attempt
enabled onboard lan and disabled the advanced options of the 3com gigabit lan one by one and found the culprit to be something called Hardware Checksumming - switched that off and it connected to the excalibur server

god knows why that would allow me to connect to pryd and not excalibur
