How do i share my wifi connection from my note 3 to my laptop? when i try apps, it just disables the wifi, thus defeating the whole sharing process. can anyone help?

Your 4G internet is shared using wifi. you cannot use wifi for both.

If this physically works out for you, place the laptop within range of the router and host your laptop as a wireless access point/wifi via ICS(internet connection sharing) within Windows to your Android phone

So it would be like Router ---> Laptop ---> Android piggybacked where the phone is the one not in range of the Wifi

Another option is to upgrade your router/laptop to a longer range. If you're on N, upgrade to Ac if your wallet allows it

or just buy a Wifi range extender.

seems a bit sublime to be trying to use a mobile device which is likely to move all over the place as a range extender - when the problem that needs to be solved involves distance & orientation relative to fixed stations.
