Maybe your device is old and the wifi new or your device has failed. I would download a WiFi signal strength app from a reputable source and with a good reputation and see if any WiFi is detected on your device, go near the WiFi access point or router (at least in the same room). If that looks ok ie there is signal from the WIFi name you expect then look in the access point / router, usually done with a web browser, and look in wireless for a compatibility mode check box and tick it. This will lower your security as it will use older protocol but might help an older device connect. If it doesn't help go back and uncheck the box.
I hope this helps

Samsung tv stops streaming Netflix’s and freezes

I'd be looking at your internet speed. Sometimes when there are a lot of users at the same time the speed is reduced that will cause that. Have your provider test the modem to see if it is passing the speed you're paying for.

How to get help about technolgy

If you are struggling to find some information of how something works, or why you cannot get something to work, use my friend he is the greatest Google
the reason is if you are stuck with something so is someone else and the more common the question the more results there are out there.
My second place to go is YouTube
I get some many calls about some of the most basic set-up problems and if I don't know the answer I go to one of my friends above!
There are some cool people out there that like to make videos about how stuff works and how they have got some thing to work etc.
If you cannot find what you are looking for at first try changing what it is you are entering in to the search box. make it more specific.
So if you have an Android phone and want to add a wifi connection - state something like
"how to add wifi connection on Android phone version 4.4.2" or if it is a smasung galaxy ace phone try
"how to add wifi connection to Samsung Galaxy ace"
I hope you get the picture
I use these two sites for a whole bunch of things, including question I would not ask someone in person for fear of laughter!

When i play black ops it keeps saying connection interuped and just lags

There are a few reasons that this is happening. I play Black Ops almost daily and have encountered this endless times.

1. On the multiplayer menu right before you search for a match, look at the bottom right of the screen. It says something about a "NAT". If your NAT is CLOSED or MODERATE than this maybe the issue. You can open the NAT depending on your internet service provider:

That video may help (its the one I used) if you have Verizon, but if not, you can always search for your specific internet provider.

2. If you are using Xbox Live with a ethernet cable you should have a relatively better connection that if you are using WiFi to connect. If possible, try switching to ethernet.

3. When searching for games (on the same menu as above) hit the "back" or "select" button on your controller (the one on the left of the big circle xbox guide button) and set your search settings to "Locale" or "Locale Only". What this does is only search for connections near you which allows you to have better connections to the game.

4. Your internet itself might not be that fast. If this is the case, theres not much you can do besides pay for faster internet. This isn't always an option so I suggest avoiding it. You can however test your internet speed at:

This allows you to actually see how fast the internet you're using is.

5. Switch back to an older Call of Duty. I'm a big fan of Black Ops but no matter what you do to fix your connections, this game is highly connection based. If you are having THAT much of a problem with it and tried everything, you might as well save yourself the rage and trouble and play a game that works.

Hope this helped ! See you on Xbox live, hopefully ;)
