Perhaps off-topic, but maybe you want to install 6.3 on the laptop instead?

(Sure, come over and steal my wifi, I don't mind.)
And this minimal configuration happily just works with one of those off-the-shelf travel wifi routers (this one, to be precise, though not an ad/endorsement of it). I would imagine if you need more than the minimal /etc/hostname.XXX, then you're either connecting to something that requires security/wpa_supplicant or you've otherwise heavily configured your wifi router.
