Yes, however your speed will be limited to 12 Mbit, regardless of your WiFi speed (since USB 1.1 is limited to 12 Mbit)

If you're using a laptop/desktop w/ only USB 1.1 capability, you might want to consider using a wireless ethernet bridge instead (assuming it has an ethernet port, of course). That will give you wireless capability, but limited only by ethernet, which might be less (10Mbps), but perhaps greater (100Mbps). You also get the benefit of not having to deal w/ wireless driver compatibility issues.
