Having read everything here, i would venture a guess at your network not being set correctly, despite you insisting on ping working.
It is working as you are pinging your PC, having set the same IP address as the Mesa board.
So,
set the PC network to anything but 10.10.10.10
10.10.10.2
up to
10.10.10.254
will work, just skip 10 at the end.
Check with
ip a
to make sure the IP is set, then ping 10.10.10.10 and check reply times, they should be something like 0.1 to 0.3 ms.

So this is what I tried just now.

I have 2 Ethernet profiles in the Advanced Network Connections

1) LinuxCNC with IP address of 10.10.10.10
2) WiredConnection1 with IP of 10.10.10.50

In the Terminal if I ping 10.10.10.10 I get 64 bytes with average 0.050 ms
I then unplugged the Mesa card and ran the same test "Network is Unreachable"

You may be correct that my network is still setup incorrectly, but with my current skill set (which is low in linux) I don't know what else to try.

1) LinuxCNC with IP address of 10.10.10.10

Delete that one completely.

I deleted the 10.10.10.10 connection completely then ran the test again. 

With Mesa Board wired, I can Ping it successfully 
With Mesa Board disconnected, Network is Unreachable

OK, communications are working, so that suggests a LinuxCNC setup error.

What error do you get when starting LinuxCNC?

Start from the command line (by typing linuxcnc) to see the error(s) listed

Removing the extra Wired Ethernet from the Network Settings allows the GUI to load now. So that's a step in the right direction, but it appears no data is going to the board. 
I tried jogging the axis and get no response. As far as I can tell the connections are all correct. Checked my schematic 10+ times. But my eyes are glazing over so maybe I'm overlooking something stupid simple. 

Do you see anything in this report that gives any clues?
