Windows 7: Losing internet connection after 10 minutes to browsers. Please help!

Losing internet connection after 10 minutes to browsers. Please help!

So since last night, I have been having some issues, staying connected to the internet
I can get on either browser (whether it be IE, FF, Chrome) and it will work just fine, but after 10-15 minutes, I can no longer access any sites. I haven't downloaded anything recent either so I can't figure out what is causing it
I am currently connected wirelessly, and it has happened on two different access points. Home and work.
Anyways, could use any and all help. I'm getting tired of restarting!

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

As a first measure I would restore from a restore point before last night
and just to keep it safe, run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

At home you could try to switch the channel (check your router manual) but that doesn't help you at work.

I would go to your Power Options -> Advanced settings Wireless Adapter settings set Power savings mode of whatever plan you're using to Maximum performance

You could test the wireless part by plugging in to the AP directly using Ethernet cable. You can also reboot your pc and the router/modem also, as this sometimes repairs internet connectivity problems.
