Amongst many, DUmeter version 6 works well for me.  If using Comodo Firewall or Internet Security, free or fee, the widget has download and upload indicators.  I think Wise System Monitor has something similar.  Glasswire [free or fee] - ditto.  Because DUmeter can sit quietly on the taskbar as a toolbar [if not set as Always On Top] -- I settled on this one.

There are a number of things can contribute to the reliability of your wireless signal between your computer and your wireless router. Do you want a tool that just tells you if the signal was dropped or do you want a tool that will show you SSIDs, frequency range (2.4GHz or 5GHz), and channels?

 

Some products that will give you detailed information are inSIDDer and WiFi-Inspector.

You would want to test the wired connection when the wifi drops to determine if you have a wifi contention issue or its a ISP issue.  If both wired and wireless burb its a ISP issue.  If its just wireless but you have a working wired connection you need to troubleshoot just the wifi.
