Click on the 'hammer' icon, at the top of your mIRC screen.

On the left side, there is a list of settings. Choose 'connect'

For Full name, type whatever name you'd like to go by.
For Email address, just type in any email address

Underneath the spaces for your nick, it should say: 'Server: Undernet - [server name]. If it doesn't you need to change it. Click on the orange button, and look for IRC server. Click on the drop down menu, and choose an Undernet server, near the bottom of the drop box and not an AustNet server. Click connect to server to try these new settings.

You can also use the web-based chat client at http://www.undernet.org/webchat.php. You will need Java installed for this, though. To start, just type in your name, and your nick. For channel, choose 'Another Canal'. Press connect, and wait while it loads. Once you see 'You are connected to the Undernet (or something similar) you can type /join #lanekent

I loooked at the email address you used. It might be the dashes in your email address preventing you from joining.

The Java chat that Qex suggested might work for you until we figure out what's preventing you from using mIRC. We have a few people who use the Java one who, for one reason or another, aren't using mIRC, like if they're at someone else's house and don't want to download a program onto someone else's computer.

Hmm, interesting. Are you using your own computer or one at a university that might be blocking IRC somehow? Some FoLCs have had their workplace or their university block IRC.

Miss Parker.... change your username to something in lowercase only. No caps.

And if you get a message telling you to quote a password because of a broken identd make sure to follow the instructions and type /quote pass numbercombination where numbercombination = a string of numbers randomly generated by the irc server you connect to.

Austnet is not a part of undernet. Although if you can get on oz.org I might be able to help you figuring out undernet. Unfortunately however, I am on at unusual times as I am in Asia....

Regards

KiWi
