I moved to Japan for a few months and I'm constantly disconnecting from the internet on my laptop, I tried buying a new wifi adapter as well as removing power restrictions on my laptop, I also tried connecting the laptop directly to the internet and still managed to disconnect many times, however my roommate is able to connect to the wifi perfectly fine with no issues.
 
I would look at how many devices are connected to the WiFi, how far you are from it when you try to connect, and even how often the WiFi signal drops. Some devices, when the signal drops, don't auto reconnect when it comes back. Leaving you to reboot either the device or the modem/router, or both. Try the following and see if it helps.

1. Go to "Control Panel".

2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

5. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.

6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "Wi-Fi networks".

7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected.

NOTE: If this doesn't work, you may want to reset your modem/router, and then once it is fully loaded again, repeat the above steps.

If this doesn't work, test seeing if your laptop will connect via Ethernet. If so, then your WiFi card may be going. You can either look to replace it/have it replaced, or get an external (plugs in via USB) WiFi card.
