I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me here, but I figure this is the best place to go for help with mIRC.

Basically, I can't connect to any servers on IRC. I believe it started a few weeks ago while I was still at home. I figured it would get better cause maybe a server was down or something but it never did. Now I'm back at school and it still isn't working. I can't connect to any server.

It gives the basic message:
"[19:14] * Connecting to irc.gamesurge.net (6667)
[19:14] * Unable to connect to server (Connection refused)
I can't figure out what would be wrong with it. I've had IRC for over a year and it always worked. Any ideas?
