What ISP (Internet Service Provider) are the people that are having problems using? I'm using sympatico and Xchat (www.xchat.org
) and currently have no issues getting on. One thing to check to see if it's an issue with the routing (the way your computer gets to the server) is to type "tracert irc.chat-sollutions.org" (no ") in a dos window (to open a dos window in windows click on start, run and type in "command", again no "). if the route makes it all the way to irc.chat-solutions there's no problem with the routing or chat, it's your system (could be your java installation in internet explorer or netscape).
