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

Sorry no. What WiFi point is your phone receiving internet from? Y not just connect your computer to that same router?

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.
