Default [Q] Creating a Wifi Hotspot with Nexus 5

I just tried to give my laptop internet access though my Nexus 5 but to my dismay it did not work. I used the Wi-Fi tethering built into Android and it created a hotspot and I was able to connect to it but with limited connectivity. I am able to connect from the laptop but have no internet connection. I have had no problem on previous phones. What could be causing this?

I got my phone through Sprint. Could they somehow be blocking it?
