Using the iPad as a Wi-fi booster?

An odd question mixed with a random thought!

The Wi-fi signal in our bedroom isn't too good since the router is away over in the lounge.

Could we somehow use the iPad as a signal booster, half way, and connect a laptop in the bedroom to the iPad (say it's in the hall) which is in turn connected to the router? Does that make any sense at all ?!?!

Router (lounge) iPad (hall) laptop (bedroom)

So a bit like tethering, but without the mobile network side of things.
