Recurrent wireless connection dropping

I recently bought a Lenovo G780 Laptop 2 months ago.
8gb of installed memory.
884gb capacity with 89 gb used.
Windows 8.
Intel Core i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90 GHz.
Qualcomm Atheros AR8162/8166/8168 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)

My wireless network at home is a Verizon Fios MI424WR router. I have no trouble connecting to my wireless network but every so often, my laptop will get dropped from this network. On the taskbar, the 5 wireless signal bars indicate I have limited connectivity and I need to click on it and open available networks and it will indicate "Limited connection" and so I will disconnect and then re-connect to my network without issue. This occurs frequently, most prominently when I am requiring higher bandwidth (including streaming videos (youtube) or playing online games i.e. starcraft). Also, other laptops under this network do not seem to have this problem, at least with streaming videos.

What should I do?

Thank You.
