Hey everyone.  Before making an investment in a mining rig I want to make sure I can configure my normal computer to pool mine properly.  I created an account and miner on BTCguild and bitclocker and have the same issue for both pools.  the program seems to initially connect fine, and it's processing about 4 MHash/s, but the console says "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 0 2" multiple times.  My Mhash rate fluctuates minimally around 4, and this error just pops up over and over.  I only saw a message that BTCguild accepted my share once, right after starting up GUIMiner, but I haven't seen that again.  When I log into BTC guild I have 2 shares and on bitclockers I have 8, even though I only saw it accept once.  The one time I saw it accept, when I checked BTC guild it said my speed was 4.77.  Although it shows 2 shares now, my speed says 0.00.  I've tried searching for this problem but the people I find with this error are trying to solo mine.

here's my console log in GUIMiner:

My computer is running Windows 7 and has an NVIDIA GPU.  I haven't done any particular configuration beyond setting up my accounts for those two pools, then running GUIMiner.  I haven't set any extra flags either.

-How do I fix this error?  And If everything was working properly, how fast can I expect my shares accumulate at my speed of 4 MHash/s?  I know it's not enough to really make any money, I just want to make sure I can easily get everything working before buying any components for a rig.

EDIT:  The program and website for BTC guild now say 2 more shares were accepted after letting GUIMiner run for a few minutes, though I don't see the accepts in my console.  The BTC guild website says my speed is 9.5 now.

4 Mhash/s is nearly 0, It will take you a while to get a share. Speed on the website is always a little higher than you will see in GUI Miner.

As for your problem, I don't think it's anything you can fix. It are the pools that are unstable at times. If I check my logs from BTCguild, I have the same error from 17:30 onwards to 18:42. Not much you can do about it except for switching to another pool.

Also, no offence, but 4Mhash/s is almost worthless. It will take you ages to make anything profitable.
