I just recently had comcast come to my house to service my connection, he said he had to replace the connection out at the pole and the box it connects to outside my house. Before all this i could log onto IRC no problem, but now it's like its not even finding an internet connection to attempt connecting to a server. Could any settings have changed that cause just irc to not work? I can play online games and surf web pages but no irc. Or can I just quick fix the problem and reinstall mirc?
