    So I open iChat, it signs me on, says welcome, then immediately signs me off. I've tried restarting the computer, unplugging my router, unplugging my modem.. no help. I'm having no problems with my internet browser or getting on xbox live so it's not an internet issue. Please help. As always, thanks in advance for any advice.

    Also, please don't say use aim, because I have aim and it crashes constantly on both my macs.

    on the top of my head.. i recommend you search around the forum for ichat problems.. one way is to change the port number i believe..

    I also recommend Adium. (thought it has no video chat ability)

    Seconded. Are there actually any IM clients as easy to use as Adium in existence that allow you to connect to just about any IM network at the same time?

    Oh by the way I just got a pop up for a pink macbook air for mothers day. There's no pink macbook air. Silly pop ups.

    Follow up post: Adium rocks even more now. Everyone searching for an instant messaging program should get Adium. Word.
