    I am trying to connect to IRC via my browser--FireFox--but when I hit "Start Applet" nothing happens...

    Is there something I need to download and install prior to running the applet?

    Java or you could get a real IRC client.

    Well Java took forever to install but I finally got it--incidentally I got Chatzilla also, as Java was taking an eternity to load...


    Okay, now I'm going to go click "start applet"

    Thanks everyone.

    *Grr* thats 3 programs I've downloaded tonight and installed and none of them will connect for me. I wonder if it may be the firewall or something...

    Anyway, forget, I'll have to figure it out at a time when I am not too frustrated and hopefully I will join in the WiFi fun next week.

    Yeah probably, but its getting late and I've eaten already (which means I get tired easier and faster) and since I'm not home--No WiFi at home right now--I'm going to head home, get into bedclothes and try to relax a bit and go to sleep.

    I'll work out the details through out the week hopefully and join you guys and gals for WiFi night next week.

    From Where???
    you must allow irc on your firewall. you will also have to forward the ports for connection if your router requires it. i can't really help much without knowning what client you are using and more about your computer. with the java applet it works over port:80 so if you can get on the web you can chat.
