    I have not tried them yet, but this is the only ac spec usb wifi dongle I could find that shows 10.6 compatibility:

    Ew-7822UAC

    Since your computer is only usb 2, you may not get full speeds like usb 3, but it should be the fastest available for this computer.

    You will also want to look at the PDF file on the driver page as well, the dongle appears to require a driver and it's own wifi connection app.

    The good thing is that this dongle lists El Capitan compatibility, with the required driver signing no usb wifi products were compatible the last time I checked.
