mIRC hasnt anything to do with the various networks or websites, only they can tell you why they are down. You can read info about that IRC error and find a link for more in this thread

If you suspect something you recently started using has a compatibility issue with mIRC, its best to start by contacting whoever wrote it and read any support documentation they have.

SInce what you're attempting to download is almost certainly illegal, several possibilities leap instantly to mind:

(1) the servers are so overloaded by other people rushing to d/l cracks etc. that there just isn't enough time for them to respond to you when you try to connect

or

(2) the servers have been shut down by the law/establishment/powers-that-be or whatever for dealing (or allowing dealing) in illegal things

or

(3) the servers are being attacked by a someone with a grudge against the network management, or who just thinks that distributed denial of service attacks are fun.

Of course, it could just be that the whole network is down for maintenance (e.g. upgrading the ircd used), or that the hub has collapsed (someone tripped over the plug, perhaps wink).

Added note:

Downloading illegal files, including cracks, can land you in serious trouble with the Police. Heavy fines and in persistent/extreme cases, jail sentences, can be issued to people with illegal files on their computers.

If you're one of those "I don't care about the law" people, then also realise that the mass/illegal file trading community is packed with viruses - many many cracks are viruses, a lot of them are covered up very well.

Also remember that IRC means Internet Relay Chat and is not there for downloading. It is for chatting. There are programs specially setup for illegal file trading, if you're absolutely adamant on breaking the law and risking your computer's 'health' then use them rather than mIRC.

Happy chatting!

Regards,

I guess its need for speed underground you talking about.. "crack 4 nfsu" then i think the only way you can play it online, thats to buy the game.. and if its a file you want to DL from the net, then we on this forum cant help you. this is irc related stuff.. not about games, sorry
