It may be . Go to the setup of the device and make it a hotspot. Then other devices can connect. It is different than my devices so you need to look up the docs for the device.

You can also go to Windows 8 wireless settings and make your Windows 8 Computer a hotspot.

One of the two ways will work

Without a model / name it is hard to tell, but my unit does what you want and this one looks like it will as well. Just set up Wi-Fi access in the unit itself and secure it.

Depends on which version of Windows you are using.  Please let us know.  Earlier version of Windows needs to make use of NETSH command to enable WLAN service.  In Windows 10 can do via GUI.  As long as the WiFi adapter has valid driver in that version of Windows that's achievable.

Only if you can get internet access from a wired connection for the first PC  then you can access your USB WIFI Adapter with other devices (second PC).

Note:  it doesn't support Windows 8.x / Windows 10.

Before Windows 10, do he following in admin command prompt to make your WiFi adapter a WiFi hotspot:

"netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=happy key=12345678"

In Windows 10, do the following:

1. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Network & Internet > Mobile hotspot.

2. Choose the Internet connection you want to share.

3. Select Edit > enter a new network name and password > Save.

The first PC is Win8, connected to internet via wifi. and then plugged the device into first PC. Second PC is Win7. Is it possible for the second PC access internet via the first PC (through the device) ?

Honestly, I'm sure if you had a wired connection on PC 1 you could connect to it with second PC, but I didn't try with WIFI on the first PC.

I think there must be some problems using two WIFI adapter at the same time on one PC and that is impossible.
