Default WiFi adapter works with hotspot but not router?

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a PC (I can name specs if needs be) which didnít come with a dedicated WiFi card, so the seller provided a USB WiFi Dongle.

The name of the dongle is Realtek RTL8188FTC Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter.

To address a few things beforehand, yes it is plugged into a USB 2.0 and not a 3.0 port. It works without fault on my mobile hotspot but wonít connect with internet access to my home router, which works with many other household devices. I have tried messing around with power settings in Properties - Configure but still no luck.

I am running an Up To Date Windows 10 Professional, and could be missing drivers, Iím not sure.

I would be endlessly grateful if someone could help me, so thank you in advance.
