You still need to get the wireless cards for whatever pc'* you want to connect to it, otherwise yes, it'll work.

You won't need the hub at all. A switch or a router will replace it, but a router is preferred.

Some cheap routers dont have the switch built in and only have 1 port. You will need another hub or switch for multiple computers...

Hub = Pooled bandwith (IE 100Mbit total for all ports)
Switch = Dedicatied Bandwith to each port (IE 100mbit to each port)
