Try this list of servers on quakenet Jim , best try the yankee ones first, connect to the servers rather than irc.quakenet.org or type "/server example.quakenet.org"*.

 

Some servers limit the geographic areas that they accept connections from because generally if you try to connect from very far away you get a slow, laggy connection. However the irc.quakenet domain redirects to the first server that returns a ping, which would sorta suggest that you'd have a better connection although not always the case.

 

 

*The first person to post saying they get time-outs from example.quakenet will be flayed alive and rolled in salt.

cheers caz i'll give texas a go on that :P

that seems to be the closest geographical one on the list in the us.

 

 

edit:

:(

[ERROR] Connection to irc://netfire.tx.us.quakenet.org:[6667]/ (irc://netfire.tx.us.quakenet.org:[6667]/) refused.

just sussed it out. sometimes i've managed to go on. as have darklite.

 

the trick is to manually connect to uk.quakenet.org as US servers dont like asiapacific.
