Since upgrading to version 7.19, I can no longer get on line. I keep getting an "erroneous nickname" message, and an instant disconnect. What changed to cause this? I'm anxious to get back on line with MIRC. HELP!

Try changing your nick, email, and/or identd username. The network doesn't like something that you have there. Often, it's your choice of the first character in the nick. Or, if you are using a nick that uses UTF-8 characters (non-English letters, etc), it may be that the network doesn't support UTF-8 nicks.

I've looked into those issues, changed some, and to no avail. I did get this message;
* Connect retry #2 irc.link-net.org (6667) (dns pool)
if that helps narrow down anything. All I did was upgrade to the new version. The old one worked fine. I don't understand what could have possible changed between the two versions.

Thank you for sending these suggestions.

Okay... a new one! This time I got this message...

Closing Link: 68.56.165.189 (*** Banned (cache))

Does anyone see a problem in here I can fix?

Okay... I'm on, at last! I changed from link to DAL net, and it went on like a charm! Thank you all who have looked at these and tried to help.

So that you know, "dns pool" is normal and is not an error. All it means is that it's trying the next server in the list.

Banned means you're banned. Probably for the bad nick too many times. If you want to use that network sometime, you should find their website and find out what their rules are. Otherwise, use a network that doesn't have as strict of rules.

In addition, many networks disallow nicknames that start with a digit - like "65marlin" smile
Technically (RFC 1459):
Quote:
<nick> ::= <letter> { <letter> | <number> | <special> }
