  • Windows 10 machine will not connect to network or Internet

    So I have an interesting question: When I'm trying to connect to the Internet of my Windows 10 machine, it says I can't connect to the network. This lasts around 30 minutes and then connects. Why is there such a delay? I checked the router and drivers and there are no issues. What can I do?
