Check Switch USB problem Wifi adapter

For a couple of weeks now I keep losing my WIFI connection from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. I am using a Realtek RTL8192CU mini wireless adapter which is plugged into a USB 3 port at the front of my case. My old man is wired into the Sky router downstairs and seemingly has no problems. I have recently got a new case and swapped my pc from my old case to this one (Been building for years) so not as if I don't know what I'm doing. All connections are sound, have even put the adapter into several USB ports and I still get the same. It doesn't happen all the time, just without warning or reason. Have noticed download speed is down a fair bit too. Drivers are up to date, using Windows 7 with SP1.

With Edimax adaptors selling for less than 8 quid, I'd try replacing the existing one.
