Expresscard replacement for broken airport card

I dropped my macbook and the the airport card has become detached with track stripped from the board so not economically replaceable. The rest of the machine is thankfully fine and I can get internet with an ethernet cable but... I would really like to get it connected wirelessly again.

I have tried several wireless dongles that are supposed to be mac compatible but I couldn't get them to work. The machine is a late 2011 17" running on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.

My next thought is to try an expresscard notebook adapter but can't see one that looks as though it will be compatible. Has anyone got any experience with them, do you have to install drivers?

Any advice gratefully received!!! :-)
