If you cannot access the site either (and you did enter a valid URL into your browser), then it's possible your ISP is blocking connection to the entire irchighway domain (both HTTP and IRC), though that's rather strange.
Are you able to connect to other networks and their sites?
Yes, I can connect to other servers and sites, rizon for example. My ISP tells that they haven't blocked anything (But I don't know if I can believe them). Maybe irchighway blocked me somehow? Can this be because of virus? My registered nickname on irchighway server is Orchill. Thank you very much!
I really need help cos irchighway is a place for all my favorite channels... :(((
Connection timed out wouldn't occur if they blocked you on IRC. And there really isn't any reason they'd block you on the website.
You might try looking into any antivirus/antispyware software you have. Maybe you somehow have the network blocked. Check your router as well. I don't really know how you'd manage to block it like that, though.
Everything was working fine but then yesterday I've been getting this...
* Connecting to irc.darkmyst.org (6667) - -intermedia.sg.as.darkmyst.org- *** Looking up your hostname... - -intermedia.sg.as.darkmyst.org- *** Found your hostname. - Closing Link: adsl-71-129-41-26.dsl.irvnca.pacbell.net (Detected probable drone/spambot (Clones). If this is in error, please email email@example.com and include this message.) - * Disconnected
When I first saw this error, I waited and I tried again later and it worked for quite a while but then it died again and this error reappeared. I thought it would work if I waited again but it doesn't seem like it's gonna happen.
Try changing your identd username (Alt-O > Connect > Indentd). Note that if you have the checkbox enabled for using the e-mail address for the identd, you should change that or uncheck the box instead.
Some servers automatically ban you if your identd is something "weird" that appears to be a spambot ident.
[22:39:17] * Connect retry #199 irc.swiftirc.net (6667) (dns pool) - [22:39:17] * Unable to connect to server (Connection refused)
ok i dont know what the problem is.. i dont know why but no matter what server i try i cant connect its the newest mIRC and its registered so i dont know why it wont work =\ the OS is vista and the firewall is normally turned off cause i have to use my Nintendo wifi usb connector...
DNS Pool isn't an error. It just means there is more than one server using that IP/DNS.
As far as not being able to connect, make sure Antivirus and Firewall software aren't blocking mIRC *OR* IRC and that your router isn't blocking IRC. Beyond that, check with your ISP to see if they block IRC ports.
You mentioned trying different servers, but try different networks as well. See if it's related to the network or not.
Dear support team, I can't log on at all. This is what I get: *Connecting to Karaoke (6667)* Unable to resolve server, then it tries 10 times to connect and each time getting the same message. I have been logging on for two months now the same way and I have never had this problem. Thanks for any help you can give me. Dave
If *Connecting to Karaoke (6667)* Unable to resolve server is exactly what you see, then your problem is that you aren't trying to connect to a valid server address. "Karaoke" isn't valid. It should be something similar to "irc.Karaoke.org" or "servername.Kakaoke.org" or whatever. "Karaoke" may not even be part of the server address.
You're going to have to figure out what the server/network is and use that to connect.
