There are IRC networks that have connection issues when using the Mibbit IRC client.

  • Some of these issues are simply you selecting an inappropriate server and port combination for your chosen network.
    • Read on for suggestions.
  • Some of these issues are temporary, and should clear up on their own.
  • Some of these issues are on going, and may or may not be cleared up in what we might consider a 'reasonable' time.
  • Some of these issues are for all intents and purposes, permanent. It does not appear that any change is possible.
