What is Jmeeting? You are aware this is an mIRC forum, and mIRC is not the same thing as IRC, yes? smile

Ah, I see, no problem smile

The ping! pong? message you receive in Status (I think that's what you're referring to) is meant to be there - it's the server checking that you're alive, and you replying to tell the server that you are. You can hide this message via ALT+O > IRC > Options and checking the box 'Hide ping! pong? event'.

However, if you are disconnecting, you need to tell us what the disconnection error message is. I feel that it's likely to be "Software caused connection abort" - in which case, see this thread.

It's also a good idea to use the Search feature, located at the top of this forum, expand to 'All Forums' and 'All Posts' for best results. Lots of (and most of) error messages have been posted before and resolved.

Other than that, you'll need to get back to us :tongue:

Thank you for your help.
the message i get before getting disconnected is
Ping pong time out
asking for me to type in
/notice CD888734 (number changes with each time out)
before I can get it typed I am disconnected
some times it brings up my alternative ID some times not.
some times I stay on for more than an hour

somethimes get ping'ed right after I bring up the room
Thank you for your time.

First off

I have never seen that message. But your problem seems that server sucks. It seems lagged out. IM assuming the rest of your internet stays up? If so then its the irc server's problem. If you are also loosing your net connection then thats a different problem. Have you tried ot connect to another server on the network if there is one? if you use say irc.something.net and you are using windows try
In mIRC
"/run ipconfig /flushdns"
Then reconnect to irc.something.net
That will flush your dns and hopefully connect you to another server if they use a round robin feature
