For 2 days my computer has been trying to upload new work. I keep seeing "Scheduler request failed: Error 417"

You could try switching from htt protocol version 1.1 to version 1.0.

To do so, you must create a text file named cc_config.xml in your BOINC data directory (if it doesn't exist already). The data directory is mentioned in the message tab of BOINC manager after a restart of the client.
With notepad or a similar text editor, enter (copy&paste) the following into that file:

<cc_config> <options> <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> </options> </cc_config>
There are no lower case 'L' characters in that code, only digits '1'. More information about cc_config you can find here.
In BOINC Manager (Advanced view) select menu 'Advanced->Read config file' to activate the new configuration.
