Did you use literally /server EFnet?

You need to use a real server name, like /server irc.foo.com

EFnet server list here, for example: http://www.efnet.org/?module=servers

Man , i've done as you said and is continuing with the : could not look your hostname.
i think is beacause my connection, i'm connect through the usb port.
