you will need to tell us what happens/what error msg you get when you try before we can help.

Some DALnet servers have been down recently due to attacks on the network. There are servers up and running and often updated to tell you which servers you can connect to by checking out this webpage try one of these servers see if it helps....

By the way, I got this off of the sticky thread in the "Connections" category....

As TheGame said, there is a sticky post about this in the connections forum here. You cant use the random irc.dal.net to connect because of the way it has been purposely set to resolve. YOu must use a currently linked specific server, like
typing in your status window: /server someservernamehereyouknowislinked.dal.net
