Well, the PC would need to have a WiFi adapter installed, too.

But you would download and install Virtual Router.
e.g.
Virtual Router Initial Setup
Then click the Start Virtual Router button...
Nearby WiFi devices should now see the HotSpot created... e.g. in the example shown that would be the SSID VR_WiFi. If they Connect to that and enter the WPA2 passphrase (MakeWPA2passphraseHere in the example), they should make a WiFi connection to the WiFi adapter, through the Virtual Router, then to the internet through the PC's ethernet cable connection.
