I have tried Pidgin, Gizmo, and Kopete and on all of them, the clients seem to drop the connection after a short period of time. It also usually takes quite a while for the client to initially connect. Nothing has changed with my network setup that I am aware of, and my internet connection does not report any drops.

This problem began once I upgraded to Hardy Heron. It did not occur in Feisty Fawn. Other than downgrading, does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
