This Network adapter gained support in kernel 5.5 and higher...

Upgrading your kernel may do the trick...

https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.5/linux-headers-5.5.0-050500-generic_5.5.0-050500.202001262030_amd64.deb

https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.5/linux-image-unsigned-5.5.0-050500-generic_5.5.0-050500.202001262030_amd64.deb

https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.5/linux-modules-5.5.0-050500-generic_5.5.0-050500.202001262030_amd64.deb

To install:
Download each .deb file and transfer to a USB.
Plug the USB into your computer without networking and move all three files to your home Downloads folder.
In your terminal, change directory to downloads

cd ~/Downloads

Then enter in:

dpkg -i *.deb

The * sign should cause all three .deb packages to install in order in one command.

Double-post: Please see above for Kernel Pointers.
Afterthought: Your hardware would be well supported in Zorin 16; though Zorin OS 16 Ultimate is still in development. Even so, it may be worth testing for you to try out since you are on a fresh clean install, anyway...
https://sourceforge.net/projects/zorin-os/files/16/beta/Zorin-OS-16-Core-Beta-64-bit.iso/download?use_mirror=phoenixnap

IF that works well and properly, let's message the ZorinGroup to see about refunding your purchase of Zorin OS 15.3 Ultimate that you may choose to either hold for the Z16 Ultimate Release or donate to the team, instead:

Since you're already downloading to your phone, you could plug it into your computer instead of trying to transfer to usb, which doesn't always work or can be a pain, then transfer it straight to your hard drive. Zorin supports a large number of mobile devices and may not need a driver install. Moving the installers multiple times also provides opportunity for data corruption, even through no fault of your own.
