Unhappy Desktop Hotspot

Hello All,

I have a custom built pc and use ethernet for my internet access. This is for my workplace and we do not have WiFi but only Ethernet access. I would like to have my desktop pc emit wireless network(WiFi) as a hotspot from where I can connect my handheld devices to the same network as my pc.

I especially need this to connect the HoloLens to the same network as my pc so would I have to install a WiFi card/ USB WiFi adapter to turn my PC into a wireless HotSpot?

Could you tell me if this USB WiFi adapter can do the trick? Link:

The way they word it sounds like it relies on their software. It probably will work, but no telling how good.
