Windows 7: Win 7 internet connection occasionally stops for one to two minutes

Windows 7 Home 64 bit
Win 7 internet connection occasionally stops for one to two minutes

I'm on Windows 7 (updated) with direct connection via a power line adapter. I've had this setup for six or eight months with no problems. Then about a month ago I began getting the "no internet" message when browser (I.E, Chrome etc) would try to access any page--this would happen once or twice a day but sometimes not at all. Internet would stay disconnected for perhaps a minute or two and then normal connection would resume. Running system network diagnostic during break would find no solution. My wife, who is using Windows 10 on a direct ethernet connection did not experience the problem and her system would work OK when my net connection was broken (and we are on the same modem and router).
