You cannot share 3G internet like that, the two devices use different technologies.

Your 3G USB dongle connects to your mobile phone network, whereas your USB Wi-FI adapter is for connecting to a wireless router which in turn is connected to your broadband provider via copper or fibre-optic cable.

A USB Wi-Fi adapter uses IEEE 802.11 wireless technology which your 3G USB dongle doesn't have.
