So, I have seti@home running now on my laptop, but all I ever see is "downloading work from the server" So, if someone can explain to me what I am supposed to be seeing and what I am to be doing here, I would appreciate it. I'm new to this, so I really need some help

Your downloads are probably hanging due to network congestion. The fix for the problem is in this thread

Welcome new member!
I was totally confused at first also, I believe my computer just sat idle for a day or two with the same message "downloading" also. Then by the third day I had something like 12 tasks between SETI and MilkyWay@home and now I am always processing.

I am thinking you should be okay? Maybe reboot which you have probably already done.

Good luck and have fun!
