If you were able to update you TV version, then it did so over the wireless connection which means it has internet access. You will want to look at some kind of compatibility issue with the TV/Dongle and netflix.

Try the instructions at www.verizon.com/fiosgetconnected if you are confidnt that you are using the right essid and wep key for your fios router (can be found at www.verizon.com/repair) then try changing the wireless channel in your router menu. Try all of these. So try channel 11,6,&1 If 11 is not good change to 6, if six is no good then try channel 1

Having similar problem with Samsung 6500 series and QIP7100-2.  Router sees TV, but TV claims there is no connection.

 

For previous post, there is no info in the wiring diagrams on connecting to internet, and the repair link is broken.
