I'm running windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2 on a Toshiba Satellite L305D laptop. I'm connected to the internet via VZaccess Manager's version for a Verizon MIFI2200 wireless wifi device on wireless 3G connection. Using built in Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter. I have AVAST free version, MalwareByes AntiMalware.



I'm getting a 10060 error when trying to connect to any IRC server using ICECHAT and mIRC. I've tried to reset TCP/IP, Windows Socket, and Windows Firewall. I've also tried to connect to IRC with firewall completely turned off.

I used these commands while in "elevation." I'v tried them in different order with and without rebooting in between and many ipconfig reset/renews.

netsh int ip reset reset.txt
netsh winsock reset
netsh advfirewall reset

I have also removed a number of infections which you can use this thread for reference. I am not trying to repost. That thread was meant to clear infections and this one I'm looking for specific help with winsock problems.

My next actions is to download something like CCleaner and see if the problem can be fixed with cleaning my registry then I'll retry all those commands I just previously posted about.

If anyone has any ideas on anything else I could I would love your support and help. THank you.

Still no luck. Another resource I have found is this.

But I do not understand where to use this at.

Verizon Wireless is blocking IRC. Crazy. All I want to do is connect to a simple irc server that is ran by an online web game.
