I've been using my phone's internet via USB on my computer, so now I don't have internet on my computer. Whenever I plug my USB cable into my computer or laptop, it says "USB device not recognized". In device managers it says "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)". I've tried disabling "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option from my USB Root Hub, enabled Legacy USB from my BIOS and updating my drivers without results. After that I tried it on my laptop and got the same error messages, leading me to believe that the issue has something to do with my phone. It's a Moto G4 and the cable should be just fine since it charges normally. I'm a bit lost on what to do here, I've tried turning on and off the USB Debug option on my phone as well.

TLDR: Android phone not recognized by computers.
