It sounds to me like you haven't even bothered researching this yourself.

What exactly have you tried? There's plenty of walkthroughs (on this site) to help you out.

i read this two :
https://www.hackthissite.org/pages/irc/reference.php
https://www.hackthissite.org/articles/read/805

and i see that i have to register for me to chat in your network,
and after that i have to connect using whatever i registered

first i guess i have to type these commands:

To register on the hackthissite irc server, enter the following commands:
/nick <username>
/msg nickserv register <password> <email>
/join #help
!link <hackthissite username>
Then, go to the link page and confirm the linking.
Every time you login, either enter the following commands, or review your irc client's documentation to learn how to make it automatically send them for you.
/nick <username>
/msg nickserv identify <password>
/join #help

where exacly am i supose to type them ?
an second guess i need info about your network and channels where can i find these ?

There's usually only one place to type in an IRC client, try typing there. For a more detailed set of instructions please let us know what IRC client you are using, as they all differ.

First, you have to connect to the network. Then, once you're connected, you can type those commands.

More specifics are required to better help you. What irc client are you using? What OS are you on?

Dude, I've never seen someone so helpless. (Not true, I do all the time)
Connect to irc.hackthissite.org. Then issue your nick/nickserv commands. Then join channels like #hackthissite.

Shit.

Having issues connecting it keeps saying socket error (error101), also it will say looking up hostname then couldnt resolve and using ip instead, then in #help channel it just keeps saying disconnected over and over again, any help would be appreciatted
