My mIRC won't stay connected. After about 2 minutes I just get disconnected from the server. If anyone knows what the problem is please tell me.

What kind of disconnection message are you getting?
A common one, 10053 software caused connection abort, that has been reported a lot is covered in this (very long) sticky
Without knowing what disconnection message you're getting, the possibilities are almost endless.

It disconnects me from the server then I automatically rejoin. When the name disconnects it says "Quit: Broken Pipe". Could it have something to do with my firewall?

Possibly, although I can't say for sure.
I haven't seen that specific message in quite a while.
I'll look through my notes to see if I can find any references to it, and post back here with some possibilities, if I find any.
