Unable to resolve server, disconnect from internet

Hey,

I have this weird problem that when I want to connect with mIRC to efnet (also other networks) I get an error: 'Unable to resolve server' and after that my internet disconnects. Because I'm mostly on MSN I saw with their troubleshooter it couldn't find any DNS server anymore. So after trying to connect I have to restart my router or reconfigure it. I guess the problem has something to do with my DNS server but I can't find any decent information about it. When I google the error I mostly get problems like 'the server is down' etc, which is certainly not the case. Would be great if I can find a solution on this forum.

what server are you trying to use? and what are your firewall/proxy settings in mirc?

You might try using alternate DNS servers other than the ones assigned to you by your ISP.

Some reliable DNS Servers:

4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
