I've been trying for a while to connect to a server from my laptop. I'm getting the following error message:

* Connect retry #3 ircnet.eversible.com (6667)
* Unable to connect to server (Network is down)

This might sound like an easy one but I know the network is actually not down. I can reach it without a problem on our main computer in the house at this moment.

I'm on windows XP, I tried making sure mIRC and the port is allowed in windows firewall, I tried disabling it all together, this didn't help me. I'm not using any other firewalls.

I'm using mIRC version 6.35.

We have a Phillips router. I'm not sure why it works on the other pc and not on the laptop, anyone have any ideas?
