Can't use internet while connecting to my phone!

I am using a normal usage budget PC but for data usage I bought a Wifi Receiver. It was working well but now when I connect my PC to my phone's Portable Hotspot I can't use internet.
Everytime I use a browser I get the error code: ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED
When I troubleshoot the problem it shows "The remote device won't accept the connection". Why? Any solutions!
Thanks for taking your time to read the thread. Any help will be appreciated! Need urgent help, reply fast please. :(

Your phone may have the hotspot capability but does your phone provider allow it without an additional fee?
