Try using bluetooth PAN (Personal Area Network). Some bluethooth adapters with third party drivers have excellent features to deploy and maintain a PAN. Internet sharing is possible over Bluetooth. You will need another PC to establish such a network. Both the basic and android phone will connect over bluetooth.
I suffer from the same issue. I have found that a full phone reboot is not required-- putting the phone into Flight mode and back out of Flight mode will restore the ability to connect to 4G, at least until the next time it fails after coming off WiFi. It is still incredibly frustrating though.
