For me it seems it does not even try. I've got Reconnect Options set as 

No. of Retries = 20
On login or Timeout Eror = checked
Reconnect after = 1 minute
On broken connection = checked

But I relly suspect that this part of the KGet configuration deals with 
the computer-to-internet connection rather than with the FTP 
client-server connection since on the same dialog one can find the 
Connection Type (which I have set up as Permanent since I am behind the 
firewall) and Offline Mode (unchecked for me)
