I recently installed Reg Tool (RegTool.com) to scan/clean my registry. The program ran, detected numerous "issues" and started to "fix" them. That's when I realized that the porogram wasn't "free". I stopped the repair and then uninstalled the program. From that point on, my wireless interent connection drops frequently. If I open my router program and "save settings", it "usually" reconnects. So does rebooting the wireless router. At times though, neither of these actions work.
When I run Windows Diagnose and Repair, it usually tells me that the DNS serveer could not resolve IP Adressess.
My system is:
Verizon DSL
Westfall modem
Linksys WRT54G wireless router, Firmware Version: v1.02.7
broadcom 802.11b g wlan wireless adapter
Compaq Presario V6000
Windows Vista Home Basic SP1

Does anyone have any suggestions to help me fix these internet connection problems? Prior to the Reg Tool install/removal, the connection NEVER dropped!
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried reinstalling the software that Verizon provided? If you haven't, try that and see what happens. Otherwise, make sure all of the internet services for Windows are still installed.
