wifi connectivity issues with Realtek RTL8188EE Adapter

HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Please help! I had bought this HP Pavillion computer with the Windows 8.1 OS and did the upgrade to Windows 10 when it came out. My wifi had been working fine until a couple months ago. Now, I lose connectivity constantly. I have searched forums and tried everything I can find. I have the Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter. Nothing is wrong with our router, as all other electronic devices in the house are connecting to the internet just fine. It is located in the same room, and never had issues connecting to it before. I rolled back to Windows 8.1, made sure I had the latest adapter drivers, then rolled back to older versions, tried changing minor settings on the adapter (i.e. making sure the box in Power Management is unchecked). I uninstalled the driver and deleted the software, then restarted. Checked to make sure the wireless encryption is WPA. Is there anything else I can try? I use this computer for my business and need it to work. Nothing I have tried has solved the issue.
