freenode.net connection issues

Last Modified: 2012-03-15
i am trying to join a technical discussion group using mirc.  the group says i should connect to their channel on the freenode.net server.  I'm not sure how to get to that server.  When I connect using my software I'm on a different one, freenode.net is not an available option and i do NOT see where I can add a server - pretty frustrating!  should i be using a different client software?

Which software are you using?
Sorry just reread it...on the right side of the window listing servers to connect to is an add button

ok - this was a *duh*.   I didn't put .net after inserting "freenode" so it would not connect.  but thank you!!
