I have the same problem--when I try to connect lately, I'm getting a winsock
error. After a lot of retries, seti@home tells me the wu has been sent.
Then I get another winsock error as the machine tries to download the data.
Neither my net or computer stats change.

The website says that stats are not immediately updated, but they don't say
whether that means the stats on your machine, those on the website, or both.

So far, I've been credited with 9 of the 12 units I've processed.
