select both wifi and ethernet adapters > right click > bridge connections
Connect your AP to the ethernet port and you are done.

@Lurick can you help?

am asking you because i know your job is networking :)

So you're looking to connect the desktop, which isn't getting wireless, to an access point and then share that with the laptop?

you have to do it with the wifi connected but the ethernet cable disconnected(otherwise it will share the ethernet to your wifi). Your new bridge should show the same name as your SSID. If it says something like "limited connectivity" or "ip conflict" , right click and select "fix issues"

the laptop internet works and it says its correctly bridged wifi adapter to Ethernet but devices connected to the ap cannot connect to the internet

Did you have a previous configuration in your AP? You might need to manually configure your AP. Depending on your device, some AP have a default IP so you can access the configuration portal.

If your AP has dhcp enabled by default, you have to make sure it is getting a valid IP. 

TLDR: read the user manual for the AP, make sure DHCP is enabled and try again.
