If that isnt right do you know what to use.

With that adapter it should work if set up to be an AP.
But pain in the butt way to do it - it means you computer HAS to be on for other computers to connect.

So anyway - have you followed the instructions to set it up as an AP?

Any access point will do it. Or better still get a wireless ADSL router that does both jobs, so you don't end up with a whole collection of little boxes.

369926602 for all-in-one
371236983 or 371077567 or f370441340 or just the wireless part, and you plug that into your existing ADSL box.
