It happened again this morning for several minutes and I watched
iwconfig.  Here it is after:
wlp4s0    IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"INFECTED_MALWARE"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: 10:BF:48:E6:F0:C0
          Bit Rate=300 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr=2347 B   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=70/70  Signal level=-38 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:301   Missed beacon:0

The only thing that changed during the outage was the Bit Rate would
occasionally drop down to 15 Mb/s, the Link Quality occasionally
dropped to 64/70, and the Signal level, usually between -36 and -42
dBm would occasionally jump to 24-26 dBm.

I'm stumped.
