Laptop is crashing whenever networking is switched on

I have a Dell XPS L501x and updated it to windows 8 a few months ago. This past week it has started to freeze and crash on what appeared to be random occurrences but i figured out that it only does so whenever i am browsing the internet or streaming videos. However it works fine when i put it on safe mode with networking, so i am guessing its a networking driver issue, but I am not sure how to figure out which driver it is, if it even is that as the issue.

Any help i can get with this is greatly appreciated
