Updated to an invalid "WIRED" internet connection?

Why has Linux Mint Cinnamon been updated to 3.8.9, which now refuses to accept my wireless connection? It was running great before, but now when I open "Network" in the menu it will only give me "Wired", which I cannot connect to my Fios with... In "Network Connections", yes, I find my previous Fios Wifi address (last used 12 hours ago) and select it, but nothing happens to change offa "Wired"! I keep getting "No Internet. Cable unplugged" messages now....

I left Windows because I didn't want all the bloat and all the MS updates. {But at least they worked most of the time?} No one told me Linux (Cinnamon) would be updating my laptop into unnecessary problems! It's lucky I still have a Win98(!!) laptop so I can use it to go online {wirelessly} to hopefully fix my other currently Linux-disabled laptop..........
Not overly impressed with Linux so far; such updates are leaving me feeling quite insecure?
