RaspBMC (XBMC on Raspberry PI) - How to auto connect wireless interface?

We are currently running our overhead music, powered by a Raspberry PI running RaspBMC. It outputs a streaming music add-on to the audio 3.5mm output.

It is currently using a wireless adapter via a USB port (it is a Raspberry PI approved wifi adapter) that connects to a WPA2 encrypted WAP.

Unfortunately, it seems the wireless may be spotty at times at the wifi signal becomes weak and it will disconnect. The audio stream then stops and it has to be restarted.

The WiFi seems to auto re-connect when it drops out for a moment, but the stream does not start back up.

This is the message that is displayed when the wifi signal drops, or is interrupted and the stream stops.

Can you please help me by showing me how to auto-reconnect the stream when it stops or a script that runs to verify the stream is running in raspbmc?

It says that one or more of the items failed to play.
??>or a script that runs to verify the stream is running in raspbmc?
Sorry can't help you with that.
Sounds like  problem with the source media?
Where is the source?
Make sure all audio files are the same format?
What does the log file state?
What OS do you have installed on PI?
Openelec or raspBMC
 XBMC writes all sorts of useful stuff to its log, which is why it should be included with every bug/problem report.

this is more a problem of the player application (showing a popup & waiting for a response) in stead of retrying....
Did you try to create an issue ticket with xbmc/openelec or request it as a feature.
