How to get a Mac mini to reconnect to a wireless network automatically?

I have an Intel Mac mini using a wireless WPA connection to connect to a router which is connected to the Internet. The wireless connectivity works relatively well. However, once it gets disconnected, even if the signal may be lost just temporarily, Mac OS just "gives up" at trying to reconnect. How do I make Mac OS try and try again to reconnect to the wireless network once it has been disconnected?

I don't know if there are any commands I can use in the Terminal to connect to a wireless network. If there are, I'm thinking I can probably set up a simple cronjob to check the connectivity and attempt to reconnect if the connection was dropped.
Or maybe there is already a 3rd-party solution to accomplish this? Hopefully, it's freeware.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
