WiFi Adapter 1200Mbps, Whew USB Wireless Adapter Dual Band 2.4GHz/5GHz Channel, WiFi Network Adapter with USB 3.0 and 5dBi Antenna, Support Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 Mac OS 10.4-10.12 Linux Color: Black. I've tried the Iogear GBU521 and the Targus ACB10US1, both are Bluetooth 4.0 adapters. I've read that the Bluetooth 2.0 adapters work. I'm wondering if the age of my computer and my OS is preventing the Bluetooth 4.0 from working. Would a Bluetooth 2.0 adapter work? I can't update my OS 10.6.8 to 10.8 because my computer is too old. Additionally, there's a much quicker way to see which bluetooth adapter your mac is currently using. With your external Bluetooth adapter unplugged: If there's no Bluetooth icon in your menu bar, go to system prefs - Bluetooth and check 'Show Bluetooth in menu bar'.

Bluetooth 4 would require a hardware upgrade. There are two options you could consider, one would be to get a USB adapter the other more interesting option is to replace the existing internal Bluetooth card. I have actually done this myself and such an upgrade certainly does give you full 'Continuity' compatibility.

The adapter above replaces both the original WiFi card and Bluetooth card with a current 802.11ac WiFi card and current Bluetooth card as would be fitted in the current iMac as an example. Since this is a genuine Apple part it is automatically recognised and supported by OS X. This is the approach I used in my Mac Pro.
