Arduino UNO rev.3
WiFi shield with updated firmware
Arduino IDE 1.6.3

In my sketch, after connecting to the WiFi network, a client connection is made to a tcp server,
and string messages are sent via client.print() command based on sensor readings. In case the connection is lost (!client.connected()) reconnection attempts (to both wifi and tcp server) are performed after calling client.stop(). However, it is possible for the board to crash and stop sending messages to the server. A hard reset is the only solution for exiting this situation, which is not practical.
What are the steps that have to be considered in order to increase the stability and reliability of the wireless connection?

In addition, I noticed that the WiFi shield is in the retired list here
Why? Is it going to be replaced by a new and improved version?

I really appreciate any help.
