[RC5] Getting clients to automatically update whenever I'm online

I'm running dnetc v2.8010-463-CTR-00071213 for Win32 (WindowsNT 5.0)
as a service on my laptop which is connected/disconnected from the network
often.   What I want the client to do is fetch more blocks whenever
the buffers are low and I'm connected.  I've set the options as shown
below, but they just don't seem to work- I end up having to update
manually.

What am I doing wrong?
