vista loses internet connection

I have a new Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows Vista 32bit that's less than 2 weeks old. It worked fine at first but after a few days later and after I installed ESET Smart Security I started to loss my internet connection. Whether the two are related or not I'm not sure because I have temporary disabled the anti virus and firewall and it did not seem to help.The only way I could get a connection was to unplug the modem and wait 10 seconds and plug it back in but the connection would not last. Today my ISP hooked up a Linksys' 2.4GHz Broadband Router in addition to the modem which seems to help but I am now losing my connection intermittently.When I use Windows to run a diagnosis it comes up with Problem with Domain Name Server Configuration. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
