When I'm at a lan-party or just anywere els but at home with my computer, and i try to connect to IRC, it says:

Your username is invalid.
Connect with your real username, in lowercase.
If your mail address were foo@bar.com, your username would be foo.
-
Closing Link: xxxxx by splatterworld3.de.quakenet.org (USER: Bad username)

but when i'm home, there is no ploblem with connecting...

Connect with your real username, in lowercase.

Sounds like your ident/username has uppercase letters in it. alt+o | connect. Then make sure the "email address" is in lowercase, then go to the Identd section and make sure "User ID" is in lowercase.

Well if other people are using the same connection, then perhaps you are getting disconnected for cloning.
