Bounty: 50

I have the following problem:
On my Win10 Laptop I use a WiFi connection to the university network to get internet access in my dorm room. I use a WiFi dongle with a USB-extension cable because I only get a good signal at the window. In order to get a WiFi for other devices in the dorm room I want to use the Windows 10 Mobile Hotspot feature. But whenever I activate it, my internet connection (which was working perfectly before) is not working anymore and I cannot even ping the google DNS server (4.4.4.4 or 8.8.8.8). The original WiFi connection (to the university network) is still listed as connected though. Could not find this phenomenon on google so I am asking here. Does anybody have an idea what the reason for this could be?

Fun fact: The concept was already working some months ago, for like 3 weeks but no success since then. Dunno what changed, maybe Windows Update?
