Thats irrelevant. If there is no connection it will bring up a connection. If 
the net connection is already there it will just try to reconnect from the 
timeout or break. If it is built on the source of wget as I have heard then 
it will NOT retry if the reason was because the file did not exist or if it 
was REFUSED by the server.

What I dont understand is why you are losing the connection. Are you trying to 
keep open an inactive connection to someones ftp server? If so then of course 
it will time you out; other people want to connect too.
If you are losing connection while a transfer is in progress continuously then 
you need to look at other issues.
