I'm sorry that I am a newbie at this, and I've tried my best to solve this problem. Ever since I installed the application, I could find a project, but it would never give me any tasks. Can anyone help me out with this?

The Seti project is a bit overworked. Too many computers all wanting work is more than the present 100Mbit connection can take and as such we're all waiting for the last computer in line to download its work before we can do so. As you can see in this graph, this has overworked the connection.

No, they won't be getting a better connection any time soon. We all have to have patience, eventually (enough) work will come in that work will start.

Or else add a backup project or two. Milkyway and Einstein both do "space work" as well.

Thank you, in the mean time I'll try to find a different project :)

Actually, I've had a similar problem with most projects, the only one I have gotten to work is Milky way. Am i doing something wrong?

You'll have to give a tad more information ;-) error messages from the BOINC event log for instance.

i guess it fixed by itself, and yes, sorry I should have been more specific.
