    I can't get my wireless to connect


    I can't get my wireless to connect in any way. It was connected at one point changed nothing, but did get a few updates. could not connect wirelessly before the update and still can't connect after. Checked all settings, and due to smart TV, can't use mac filtering which is my preference. I do not want to mess with pushing a button every time I want to connect but has no choice apparently. Just says can't connect, useless message, I can figure that much myself.
    Open to suggestions.
    Dell inspiron 3520, low end laptop, 1.4 gig intel cpu, 4 gigs memory, standard low grade video card, as well as everything else on the motherboard.

    Sounds like you need to search for and install a newer driver for your dell wireless adapter. Can you plug a cable into your laptop to get the internet and download?
