Im having problems connecting to most IRC channel on a P2P network. About 4 channels let me enter and 100 wont. It was fine with my 56k and I upgraded to ADSl and found many channels I cannot enter. My firewall configeration is the same and P2P configeration is the same and I have tried different forums and still no luck. Is there a setting on my modem that may be stopping this as I have tried everything else. Anyones help would be appreciated. Thanks.

What message do you get, something with +b or +i in the message?

If +b you or your IP range is banned
If +i it's invite only

There is no message reply.
you just click on the "join channel" after selecting the channel you wish to enter and wait. Some let you in, most dont. I have not been band from the channel as I know the some of the channel hosts and non are invite only.
I have disabled my anti virus and firewall, changed my log in name and relogged in, reinstalled p2p program, reinstalled anti virus and firewall, messed with aal possible settings on p2p program and stil no joy. The only setings I have not messed with is my ADSL modem configeration.

Ah, so this isn't real IRC? It's just a chat function built into the P2P aplication?

In which case, your best bet is to contact the authors of the program, to see if they can shed any light.

If there is nothing wrong with my modem settings then thats another thing eliminated.
Thanks for your help!

ps In the plusnet forums, all the comments I have read show people with problems and Id like to put a bit of sunlight into the situation and say that I am very happy with service I have recieved scince upgrading to ADSL.
