Nope.

It's difficult to tell whether the second one is a USB ethernet dongle or just a plug converter so you can use CAT5 cable for USB but neither are going to work. USB devices need to be connected to USB ports to function, they're not standalone.

To connect a device with an ethernet port to a wi-fi network you need something capable of acting as a wi-fi bridge. Various routers, access points, repeaters and so on have this functionality.

I use powerline adaptors, no problems at all, one less thing on the wireless network too.
