Sony Expedia Z5 Tethering Fail

I have 2 phones with e installed, a OnePlus 6T & a Sony Experia Z5. The 6T I can tether to my Linux laptop but my Z5 has issues. It shows on my PC’s bottom panel that I’m connected but the browser doesn’t produce search results. I’ve tried adjusting settings but nothing has worked.

I forgot to mention that I was able to connect at first but after trying to use the phone as a wifi hotspot while charging the phone with a USB cable it wouldn’t connect anymore.
