Intermittent connection

I've recently upgraded from an antique samsung android tablet to the Kindle Fire 7. I installed the Google Play Store onto it so I can install and run my old Android Apps, including CC. The problem is that the wireless and content server connections are intermittent- works fine one time then fails ("Could not find Calibre") the next. Rebooting makes no noticeable difference. Also, it so far never fails to connect by USB. Any ideas on how to correct this?
