I enabled my laptop as a hotspot and connected my tablet through WiFi. Then I turned WiFi on and it shows me the network but it tells me I'm not in range.
After that it shows network disabled and poor connection. How do I get over this?

If the hotspot ssid shows in your Android device means, definitely it wont be an Ad-Hoc network. Most probably the the problem would be getting DHCP ip from your laptop. Try giving static ip to both hotspot network and your android device.
Go to Wifi Settings > Advanced > Uncheck the option titled "Avoid poor connections".
That will probably get rid of the "Poor connection prompt."
