stm32 discovery wifi best way to transmit data usb host

I have not done any usb before so i'm a little, well a lot ignorant in how it works. 

Could I get a $3 usb<->wifi dongle and somehow use it on a stm32 m4 ? Would it be really hard ? Where should I start reading. 

I have been looking at all kinds of alternatives. I need about 1-2Mbps back to the pc from my stm device. Oh and about 40 meters or so. Bluetooth is to short and too slow. There are lots of nordic rf chips that do 2Mbps and they are very cheap but I would have to make my own usb dongle on the pc side. There are also usart to wifi solutions but they are minimum $30 which is much more than I want to pay (in my final design).

I plan on supporting multiple transmission mediums but if one is just a no brainer that would be the main medium.

Any suggestions from those who have done similar before ?

Thanks, and enjoy your day.
