If the Network is in the Full Server List, then use the

Network name, not the server name, in the Favorite Server List. ie:  Quakenet, Undernet.

If the Network does not exist

in the Full Server List, then you will need to add it yourself, and the Servers in that Network.

Doing /server Network

does not work, it only works for Items in the Favorite Server List.
When you connect to that Network, it will go from the

1st server in that Network List, and keep attempting to connect, and if not successful, will go to the next item, until it

finds a connection.
