I have an old mid-2009 MacBook Pro which I am currently using to try to access my newly-installed 1Gbps internet connection. Looks like I can't do that, because 100Mbps is the maximum my machine can do, according to several speed tests.

So I'm thinking of connecting an external USB wireless adapter to get as much speed as I can for my Wi-Fi. What make and model is best for this problem? I'm running El Capitan (OSX 10.11.6).

Thanks for all suggestions!
