You will always get a usable work unit faster if you're using all available bandwidth for the one transfer; how is that going to "actually make things worse" exactly?

Because of the delay getting packets from one place to another, a single file cannot use all of your bandwidth.

I have one computer that receives and sends data, and the other one setting right beside it gets retry after retry. Most times the message is:

Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Do I have something wrong with the one computer? It is now out of work...

It has been running fine for a couple of months until this...

Try doing this to see if it helps:

Open a command prompt (Start -> Run -> CMD then press Enter).

At the command prompt type IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS.


Most of the time the problem is simply that SETI's internet bandwidth is completely maxed out. It may take several attempts, but work usually gets through in most cases.

I'd just like to mention that the other project I contribute to (WCG) has started doing GPU WU's and since then I've not run short of SETI work.

I guess the "solution" was to contribute some GPU time to another project XD
