You should be able to "tether" your laptop to your smartphone. Various systems call this differently and I am not at all experienced with Sony, but have a look at something like "create hotspot", "personal hotspot", "tether" in your Sony phone set up... Usually, you can "tether" via USB, Bluetooth or WiFi.

 

Basically, your Sony smarthpone should appear as available WiFi network (if you go via WiFi) and you should be able to connect your laptop to it

ForensicsGuru is correct there is an option in Settings > More > Tethering and Portable Hotspot

either you will need to plug your phone into your PC and enable the USB tethering option or you need to turn on Portable WiFi hotspot and use your laptop's wireless settings to find and connect to your phone.

 

hope that helps
