Well you have not provided enough detail for us to help.

Can you tell us which IRC server you're trying to connect to and
provide the contents of the debug window after your connection attempt
has timed out. Make sure you don't post anything sensitive, like
passwords, user ID or anything similar.

Can you connect with a different IRC client? Are you behind a
restrictive firewall?

All these things are needed for us to come up with any sensible advice.
