It should not cut out when being used.

Uninstall the Wi-Fi card, shut down, start up and install the card (preferably new driver)

Go to Device Manager, Wi-Fi card, Power tab, and uncheck the setting "Allow this card to be turned off"

Go to Windows Advanced Power Management and set Wi-Fi to maximum performance.

Do all 3 above, test and please post back.

For the windows update part the easy answer is unless it detects you are on a metered connection (like a 3g cell connection) it will always download updates as it pleases. You can even turn on deferred upgrades, but this will not stop the updating.

On the wifi advice, you are either having an issue with your wifi hardware, or the connection is not stable (too far away, other issues, etc). John's advice on troubleshooting it sounds spot on to me.
