Wifi suddenly stopped working: RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller

I have been using Zorin/Linux for a month or 2 now but the wifi today suddenly stopped working today, it just says the wifi is not active when I connect to my network. I am currently using phones wifi through USB. This is the error I keep getting when I try to connect to my wifi:

I also ran this command sudo lshw -C network to get the product which is: RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller.

Please help me out.

This usually means a DKMS handled driver is involved:

Thanks for replying but at the end it was just a router issue, I just had to restart the router and the wifi works now.
