Weird wifi connection problems

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron that has Windows 7 that has been having some connection problems. When I turn on my laptop, in the corner sometimes there is a loading connection or a connection with an X on it or the original connection. What is weird is that when there is a showing connection, I click on it to refresh my connection and I see other connections of course. When I press on either of my browsers, for example, Google Chrome it says "No Data Recieved". I also have a game which I can play online with but apparently it shows the servers. When I play the server, after 5 seconds in-game it times. When I check the connection in the corner again, all I see is my connection and nothing else. I press disconnect because the connection starts to show an yellow exclamation point on it. When I try to reconnect, it starts to but then it turns into the X on it saying "No Connections Avaliable". I try to troubleshoot but it fails immediately and I go to Network Settings and see yellow exclamation points on all the connections. Then I go and run PC Cleaner and Malware Bytes. I look for Windows Defender to run as well but it wasn't working. Although, later on after two weeks I turned it on again. Everything was fine except for the browsers. I could only play the online game and everything but the browsers was connected (including a weather thing that pops up when you turn on the laptop). I got to play for two hours before timing and restarting my computer. It hasn't connected since and I am asking for help please. Thanks, Tony!
