Could be far fetched but maybe wireless security is the culprit.
To test, temporarily disable your WEP, WPA or WPA2 Wireless security from you Wi-Fi router
Use it for 10-15 minutes to see if it disconnects.

Report here with findings. Don't forget to re-eneble security.
ADD:Seems the problem is known, follow Jerry's advice below then... ;)

It's your chipset. The RT5390 is well known. The fix isn't what I would call new-user friendly, but at least it's a fix - https://askubuntu.com/questions/1011752/i-am-having-huge-problems-installing-ralink-rt5390-wi-fi-drivers see the second post, do not miss any steps. Reboot after all steps. I prefer this one - https://github.com/agerwick/RT28XX-RT539X-Linux-driver
