    so my problem is that everytime i boot my pc my internet is not connecting to the net and i have the yellow sign on the connection icon, the only way to get it to work is rebooting on safe mode and then rebooting again and the network works perfectly if i try to just reboot my pc gets stuck on the windows 10 loading screen, im currently using a dell 790 and windows 10

    Optiplex 790 series is an old machine that if I remember correctly does not have Windows 10 drivers, only up to Windows 8. I don't see it on Dell's enterprise solutions either, but you should be able to get the most updated driver from Dell if you provide the service tag, which is located on the top of your computer, and possibly on the back.
