Cannot get mining working on 2x Radeon RX 480 Win10 Qtminer on ethermine.org

Hi Everyone,

I've been trying to mine over the last 3 days and so far, have not got it working and now feel beaten and don't know what im doing wrong and am hoping someone here can help me.

So basically i got geth, typed "get account new", made a new account and got wallet address. synced the blockchain. Got Ethereum wallet win64-0-7-6 set up and synced. Then got Qt miner and ran the program using

qtminer.exe -s eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -u 0x43afCC42115D44Fa8945b240878442874D5d2663.miner1 -G

The dag created with no probs. I have emptied appdata/local/Ethash before to be sure my dag was not corrupted.

Then I start hashing away but I am not recognised on the pool, its been like that for days now.
I don't know if my AMD driver might be causing me problems. There is something on the site that talks about using AMD driver 15.12 but that driver does not support RX 480 from what I can see. Do I need to change mining programs to claymore or something? Could anybody running a RX 480 on win10 please tell me what im doing wrong.Thanks.

    you dont really need a local wallet if you dont want to run geth node all the time, you can use online wallets, or even apps for smartphone or make an account on some exchange and use that for mining purposes, if you keep your rig online 24/7 then ok, local wallet will never resync. About you mining problems try to use a different miner or even a different pool. You can try my pool help page to get miner you want, then enter your wallet, rig name and point anywhere you like. if you like I can give you link with ready made miner so you can test right away. let me know.

    That log doesn't show any shares found. Does the qtminer output show it finding shares?

    Yeh i think thats the problem its not finding any shares. Dont know why.Ive updated my amd driver to latest version and Im going to try one card on another pc to see if that does anything.

    Finally I got this working using claymore on ethpool.org. Updated my AMD driver to 16.7.1 and seems to be working fine. Hashrate is 47.7mh/s.
