What's wrong with the WIFi

I finished my first pc build. And have to use a WiFi dongle (Foktech dual band Ac600, link below) to get any Internet as router on opposite side of the house. I have installed all The necessary drivers and its only giving me a MAX speed of 0.75mps. When my phone is connected to the same network and next to the pc it gets 40mps. I have disconnected everything in the house bar the PC and still The same result. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XZ5B5G9/ref=cm_sw_r_fm_apa_i_b0ALDbFC5BZ5G Does anyone have any idea why this might be? The reviews of the product are amazing so confused as to why mine doesn't work at all. Failing this anyone got any good alternatives to get wifi on the PC.

Are your phone and the PC using the same band when you test? If not you might have interference on one band but not the other.

Is there anything directly between the antenna and router, like the PC or other metal objects? Otherwise yeah I'd look at the band, drivers, install it again, etc. Make sure you are reading in MBps or Mbps sometimes things use one or the other.

I use a wifi detector on my tablet and run around the house it shows what bands/channels are in use, so I can pick the quietest one.
