USB host interface for WiFi USB adapter?

Hi,
I would like to connect an STM32 board into a WiFi network, to exchange a LOW amount of data from time to time (for control / data sampling, only some 100 Bytes per minute or so).

Concerning hardware requirements, I think the easiest solution would be to use the STM32 USB interface in host mode, and then connect a "WiFi USB adapter", which you get already for 15$ upwards as add-on for PC or Raspberry-Pi.

Can anybody give me some hints how to communicate with such a "WiFi USB adapter" (e. g. at digikey you get a "Adapter 802.11n Wifi USB" from "LM Techologies"). Is this very much effort? Best of course would be, if some demo software would be available, e. g. for STM32F4Discovery or so.
