    Hello all,

    I have tried several times to use the programme mIrc. Each time I want to log into the server it gives me this error.

    [10053] Software caused connection abort

    This is absolutely the router fould due to with my old router I do not have this problem.
    I have got the following model WRT54G v5.

    Is there somebody who can help me with this.

    Have you tried to uncheck the option "Filter IDENT (Port 113)" in your router security settings and see if you can connect to that server?

    I dont know if mIRC is UPnP compataible but you will most likely need to port forward for IRC ports.

    (Watch Out! Opens a wide port range!)
    IN TCP 1024 - 5000

    mIRC Chat
    IN TCP 6660 - 6669

    IN UDP 113

    yea, you can set irc to use a limited # of ports and then just forward those to the router, dont forward 1024 to 5000! I've done that with multiple PC's for the connection port, giving them each a seperate port and have been happy with the results
