Are you connecting to the right server? Try connecting to
irc.freenode.net
If you can, then you have either the wrong server name or have misspelled it.

Cant you just skip the connect prompt?
And then type in the chat screen: "/server irc.quakenet.org"
You should be connecting to a server then.

Another thing, have you set a username at the options?

Are you able to display web pages on this machine?

Can you post the entire error message?

What mindspin is talking about is when you press connect it brings up the main xchat window. In the bar where you enter text type in

/SERVER irc.freenode.net

I am out of answers on xchat. You might try installing irssi and see if it works.
