I'm using Geth + QtMiner:

qtminer.exe -s asia1.ethpool.org:3333 -u 0x37830e9f76198f82cdb81821a7a380c82e24b4f9.maplerichie -G --opencl-platform 1

My average hashrate is just around 3.2MH/s but benchmark can go up to 10MH/s, is there any problem with my syntax or configuration?

After two day mining, the balance return at geth console is still zero (0), check with command web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase), "ether"), is this normal?

From the calculation, I should already get 0.05 ETH if hashrate is 3.2MH/s. Will the mining speed affected by broadband speed? I have a 30Mbps connection only.

Windows 10, with GTX960 GPU.

Ethpool is a predictable solo mining pool. You will only get paid out after you have submitted enough shares equal to finding a block at the current hash rate. See your stats here.

Approximate time to next block: 7 months

It will be better if you switch to another pool with a different payout scheme.

Want the same mining pool quality like ethpool.org but with a PPLNS style payment mode? Check out our new mining pool: ethermine.org
