I have a usb wirless adapter connected by a usb cord going into a usb hub which connects to my computer. This computer gets internet just fine from the signal from the usb adapter. I'm wondering could you have the one computer plus another computer get onto the Internet if you had a male to male usb extension cord going from the usb hub to the second computer?

no the adapter wasn't made to be shared. Hubs can't be connected to two masters (pc's) except under special conditions. Just get another wireless adapter.

If if the two computers are on the same network - e.g. connected to the same router by a wireless or wired (network cable) network adapter connection - you can share the internet connection easily.

Tubes he wants to share by USB hub. He already has a source of the wireless signal. I assume there is an existing router. If he is close then all he would need is a CAT5 cable (if the computer has a NIC.

"This computer gets internet just fine from the signal from the usb adapter."

These days he could be using something such as the "Rogers wireless mobile internet stick" or similar which connects to local cell phone towers and in turn to the internet.
