    Is it possible that I can relay my wifi internet connection using this feature? I tried but when I start tethering, it automatically stops my wifi connection.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I think you will find the idea of wifi tethering is to use the phone as a router for other devices to connect to the net through your phone.
