Another iChat problem

After searching through the archives for some time now, I have decided to just make a new post... I am a long time reader, first time poster so bear with me here.

My iChat just recently crapped out on me. I have tried changing the ports and it has done absolutely nothing. I am clearly connected to the internet, because I am sitting here talking to you on said computer. When I open it, it just says 'Disconnected.' Absolutely nothing else, I try changing it to available and it never even tries to connect. I have just admitted defeat after about an hour of trying and come here for help.

Any suggestions?

If it helps I am on a standard MacBook pro.
