I would recommend doing projects that take some time. Rosetta@Home, World Community Grid and Aqua@Home comes to mind. You can download the work units during your free internet time, and let your computer compute it all day (or whenever you please). The internet is not needed during computation of the task. When the task is finished, it will be ready to be uploaded. You can upload it during the free internet time.
I'd say try it out. Every little bit counts. At the end of the day, it's all about advancing the sciences. Even if you only do a work unit a day, that's still something. Having high credit isn't everything.
