Exclamation [Q] How to get WIFI Tether to work? (Use phone as a connection to wifi)

Ok so my WiFi adapter broke but my phone can still connect to the WiFi, same with all other devices. I borrowed my brothers phone Xperia Z and I was able to WiFi tether with it (Connected to wifi on phone shared with computer NOT T-MOBILE DATA) But his WiFi card decided to do the same thing so now he uses his phone for his WiFi adapter. So I got my Android LG G2 and disabled mobile data pluged it into my computer and turned on wifi. Then I turned on tethering and WiFi was dissabled on the phone and a Error message popped up saying Mobile data is dissabled. Is there anyway I can tether my phone with wifi enabled to my computer I havent had a connection on my computer for weeks to the internet and I cannot replace my WiFi card at this time. Any help is apreactied in advance.

Thanks ~Reece
