[SOLVED] New wireless adapter spontaneously cuts out depending on how it's feeling that day.

No way to say for sure.

Check the event log and see if there are messages. A hardware type failure tends to producce log messages. If it is interference because your neighbors did a large file download not much you can really do about that other than maybe try a different radio channel.

As bill001g says, you may have channel interference. In the Windows Store there is a free wifi analyzer by Matt Hafner which will allow you to determine how many people are using each channel.
