What is occurring here?: 1) windows 7 connect to wifi modem. 2) initial  
connection ok by testing with ping 3) minute or two later, connection  
suddenly dropped,-client shows no internet 4) requires either reboot and  
reload wifi client or d/c wifi client and reconnect on 2nd usb port. 5)  
sometimes requires changing local ip using a mac address changer to  
immediately reconnect. This last time occurred when using Psiphon proxy  
which frequently d/c when loading a web page. Using a big ISP that  
provides wifi services. This appears to be some hacker running a d/c  
program against me? Or is this just flaky wifi?

I vote for something flaky.  Whether it is software, hardware, or
signal--I don't know.

One thing I do know--ping with a standard payload size doesn't do much
to test a flaky connection.  I have one network segment that I can ping
with a maximum payload size of 1372.  Try a size like that.
