    Something might be blocking the port. You behind any kind of firewall?

    Try connecting to a non-standard (not 6667) port.
    eg. /server -m Gameservers.NJ.US.GameSurge.net:7000

      also, is it just gamesurge, or is it ALL irc networks? try connecting to a random DALnet server and see if that works. if it does, then you'll probably just need to go to gamesurge.net and get one of the server addresses and enter it manually. IIRC mIRC 6.15 (or whatever the latest version is) doesnt have the gamesurge server addresses entered in correctly by default.

        Update:

        Ok, For Ferris and Satertek, when i go to ANY server, with any port, it says Unable to Connect, and i noticed something i didn't see before it says after it: (Connection Refused).

        Im not sure what that means so.... yeah.

          Maybe your software firewall is blocking mirc.exe from establishing outbound connections. Did you look into that?

            No i did not, i believe my Firewall is either the Windows Firewall or AVG. I'm really into computers, but that is the one thing i do not understand at all and don't know how to figure out what to do with is Firewalls.

            EDIT: I think my 14-day trial is ended, but i used to have Zonealarm it says also, but i guess its not running anymore since the trial ended. IDK if that was the firewall instead of AVG or what

              Make sure your not blocking ident as well, i've seen that be an issue. and that ident info ie (the email addy, even if bogus (and should be bogus) is filled in)

              I've used irc since 93.
              1 try temporarily turning off your firewall -what is result.
              2 try to connect to a server, then (with mIRC) click the top right corner of the status window and save a log file, or copy and paste everything in status window from start to refusal in a file and post that file or a cut and paste here so we can see whats up.
              3 try checking the firewall option (memory is vague on that to be honest)

                option: uninstall all firewall programs, working or expired.

                then goto control panel, and disable then re enable windows firewall. Try to connect. You should get a request to allow or deny. result?

                  Try Chatzilla, it's free. It's an extension for Firefox, which you might already use. Although, this wouldn't be the right IRC client if you don't want to run a web browser to use it.

                    Agree with Sarc, Chatzilla is good.
