Go Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and have a look at the wireless adapter's properties and see if there's an option for power saving -- disable it.

This could just be the setting in Device Manager under that adapter's Properties then Power Management. Untick the option "Allow the computer to turn this device off to save power", click Apply and OK your way out.
