i haven't been able to connect to the IRC for a couple months now, when i try to connect it just gets stuck at "Username and Password accepted, connecting..." and just sits there till it times out then tries again

i think it's just a problem with my computer. I need to get around to reformatting it, it's got some issues here and there

still can't figure it out. I can get on the irc just fine on my Android tablet, and i can get on other irc networks just fine with hex chat, but when i try to get on neowin I only can get this far

Update Checker plugin loaded
* Looking up irc.neowin.net
* Connecting to irc.neowin.net (208.43.57.26:6667)
* Connected. Now logging in.
* *** Looking up your hostname...
* *** Checking your username and password...
* *** Username and Password accepted, connecting...

and it just gets stuck there

edit: here's a picture of it (ps. i manually told it to disconnect to show that it just sits there)

Odd, have you tried to remove the Neowin profile and create a new one in hexchat?
