    can a single usb wifi adapter be shared between two desktops? If yes would that require a usb hub and a single male/male usb cable? If the adapter is not recognized for #2 after the cd has been run is there a solution? I ask because the adapter I ordered has not arrived. Which means I have to buy another one from another seller. Unless I can share my adapter. Advice please

    You will have to connect one computer to the internet with the usb wifi. After that you will need to enable internet sharing and then connect your second computer to the first computer.
