WiFi adapter not working properly

Basically my computer internet keeps continually dying and I have to restart it [computer] to get it working again. Every other computer's wifi connection is fine except mine. I troubleshooted and I got this message:

I then went into my device manager and it said there also that my wifi adapter was not working properly.
Curious what could be causing this? Is my wifi going bad? Virus? I stayed at a hotel and connected to their unsecure wifi two nights ago if that means anything. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

And on a side note, I started to get this message at least two months ago every time I turned my computer on. Not sure if it's related but:

Disable the WiFi Power Management at the adapter source and when you leave or go to bed either turn off the laptop of leave the AC connected to it. When the laptop power cycle managed, you need to change balance to:

Power
Turn off display in 10 minutes
Sleep PC: 20 minutes (or never)

Services.msc
make sure this service is:
WLAN AutoConfig: start/auto (don't set it to auto/delay)

You can create a batchfile or commandfile for triggering this also on your desktop

WLAN start.bat (run as the admin) code for run as is included
Code:
Echo off
runas /user:required username /savecred %homepath%\desktop\wifi_enable.bat
sc stop Wlansvc
sc start Wlansvc
end

WLAN start.cmd (run as the admin) code for run as is included.
Code:
runas /user:required username /savecred %homepath%\desktop\wifi_enable.cmd
sc stop Wlansvc
sc start Wlansvc

or cmd with TCP/IP and WiFi Fix
Code:
runas /user:required username /savecred %homepath%\desktop\wifi_enable.cmd
ipconfig /flushdns
nbtstat -R
netsh int reset all
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
sc stop Dhcp
sc start Dhcp
sc stop Dnscache
sc start Dnscache
sc stop Wlansvc
sc start Wlansvc

required username is what you use for admin name on the system.

I ran a Malwarebytes scan and nothing came up.

Thank you for your reply, but I'm afraid I don't understand how to do any of that. I'm not very tech savvy. Is it possible you could walk me through this? Sorry for the trouble!
