Sorry, I had the wrong impression that you disable the device in runtime like me (I have a wifi kill switch).

I still didn't understood the purpose. You randomly kill the wifi? You want a boot script?

If udev suggestion or ponce suggestion are not working I think
grep wlan /proc/net/wireless e.t.c.
is the manual/hardest/sky-is-the-limit way.

but if it's what you describe in this post this is already covered by /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf: please open it with a root text editor, read it carefully and edit it accordingly (tell us if you need further help after).
I solved the problem by putting these lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf:

WLAN_IWCONFIG[0]="retry 30"
Originally, I never looked in /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf because the docs said it was deprecated. I guess that just means put the configuration commands that are in that file in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.
