I just went back and noted you are running Tor. It will get in the way of many normal TCP/IP applications, in particular, IRC. If you disable Tor, your IRC function will probably return to normal.

Tor's brief description (highlight mine):
Quote:
Tor is a connection-based low-latency anonymous communication system that protects TCP streams: web browsing, instant messaging, irc, ssh, etc.
