The USB port on an Ooma Hub is non-functional.
If you can find a wireless network adapter that has an ethernet connector instead of a USB connector it should work.
It would have to be connected to a computer to configure it if your router and the new adapter don't both support WPS.
The only one I have any experience with is the TiVo wireless n adapter.

If you are getting a wifi bridge (convert wifi into ethernet port), I'd consider D-Link DAP-1522. I found it to be reliable and stable: /viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13450&start=20#p97898
