Thread: Need help with a chat program

  1. #1

    Need help with a chat program

    I am using Chrome on Win Pro 7. I downloaded and installed mIRC to use for chatting but for some reason I keep getting disconnected. This is the first time I have ever used a chat program. I like it better than just using the chat app on the website so I would like it to work. So far I have been disconnected 5 times in the space of 30min. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection so I am lost at this point.

    Shouldn't have anything to do with you using mIRC. Try coming back to chat using webchat and see if the problem persists. Internet connections can get a little wonky at any time. You can try using both and see if that makes a difference.

    I did go to the web chat and I was being disconnected there as well. Could it be the time of day? I have been in the chat room through the web site in the early morning and not had a problem. By the way my ISP is comcast if that makes any difference.

    Could be a server problem too. Try using a different IRC server when you connect through mIRC.

    Ainai ---before you were disconnected, could you see the chat room? Or were you disconnected immediately

    I did see the chat room in both cases and then it kind of froze and shortly thereafter it said I was disconnected although when I went to the menu bar and tried to reconnect it was greyed out and only disconnect was available so the program still thought I was connected.

    Very weird... I can't think why it would do that
    It's all good.
