    Good morning everyone, today I woke up to this BOINC "no work available to process" message on the rig I have in my bedroom, it's connected by WiFi to my network and it had disconnected and lost wireless settings sometime last night.

    I was able to reconnect after rebooting the system, and now it has full access to the internet, however, the boinc client keeps displaying the same message.

    I tried.to manually update the project and the client uploaded all the work that was ready, but it didn't download any new tasks.

    I've tried rebooting multiple times, restarting the boinc client and even resetting the project, all to no avail, my other rigs that are connected by LAN cable are working fine, but this one seems unable to resume crunching.

    I'm a noobie and this is my first week crunching, so I'm open to all suggestions, please guys, you're my only hope...

    EDIT: I fixed it! In my desperation I was trying all different options to see if anything worked, I have to be at work in 15 minutes, so I thought what the hell...

    I went to advanced view and clicked on Activity>Network activity always available as opposed to the default "network activity based on preferences" setting and it worked, the client started downloading tasks right away!

    Anyways, sorry to bother you guys, and if a mod reads this feel free to lock this thread, I'm sorry for being such a newbie :eek:

    Under "My project" make sure to tick off - If there is no work available for the project(s) I have selected above, please send me work from another project.

    I assume that your buffer setting is 0.1 hour or above. Currently only FAAH and CEP is sending out work and if you asked for only FAAH this will happen. Report back, please.

    Edit: Glad that you got it fixed.

    Assuming your network preferences are still at default, that's rather odd. Glad to hear it was an easy fix though!

    And no worries about the issues. We're always happy to help.:toast:

    Hi there, I hope you guys don't mind if I jump on this bandwagon instead of starting a new thread!
    I have the same problem but his solution doesn't work for me.
    Here are the messages I've received:

    WCG had some downtime today, so that is why there were no work to be had. It should be good now.

    Mm, I'm afraid the situation is still the same. I have two other computers that were and are operating without any issues. This 3rd computer is still giving me some trouble. The specs should fulfill the minimum requirement (although it doesn't have GPU, but I don't think that's a requisite feature)

    Here is the message log I received during start up this afternoon:

    It hasn't requested work in that log. Try to run update with the WCG server.

    In simple view:
    Select World Community Grid
    Project commands(Not sure it's exact name, should be the one on the right below where you select project)
    Select Update

    In Advanced view:
    Select tab Projects
    Select World Community Grid
    Under commands on the left, select Update

    (My version of BOINC is newer, so it might not look like that on yours, can't say.)
