I was just curious if this is at all possible... If I can somehow make my phone act as an extension to strengthen the signal of my router by placing it somewhere at the halfway point between the router and the laptop, because the signal gets quite weak. To clarify:

Router-------------[Phone]-----------Laptop

So, possible or not? I've got a Samsung Galaxy S2 with 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

No, your phone can't help with that problem. You can either buy a wireless signal booster, or replace router with a one that has a better wireless range. The latter option is the best of the two.
