  1. Re: IRC keeps getting disconnected with this Linksys BEFSX41 router.

    I also tried port forward for 6667 (TCP), but that didn't help either. I
    need IRC!

  2. Re: IRC keeps getting disconnected with this Linksys BEFSX41 router.

    FYI. Arpwatch log showed:
    09:49:50.586054 IP FooBar.5433 > [deleted IRC server's domain name
    address].ircd: . ack 3058 win 197
    10:10:34.571322 IP FooBar.5433 > [deleted IRC server's domain name
    address].ircd: P 164:177(13) ack 3058 win 197

    I don't see anything odd with that gap related to IRC.

    I did notice a pattern now. My text-based IRC clients (BitchX, ircii,
    and Epic4) and chat/info. bots (rbot and seeborg) can't stay connected
    online in Debian/Linux. They keep getting disconnected after five
    minutes or so. Ironically, GUI-based clients (e.g., Pidgin, Trillian
    Basic, and SeaMonkey) do NOT have this problem. I don't understand why
    that happens. It is quite frustrating since I use IRC a lot through SSH
    connections and I prefer text-based clients, especially when I am not at
    my computers.

    I never had this problem with my old Netgear RT311 router (might have to
    go back to it if I want text-based IRC or get a brand new router).
