I have a 3-4 year old MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt 2 port (but no USB-C). I recently used Bootcamp to install Windows 10 on it with the hope I could play some Steam VR games on the Quest tethered to it. I am unable to find a Thunderbolt 2 to USB-C cable. I've seen some adapters with a USB-C (male) to Thunderbolt 2 (female) connection but I have two concerns with that. 1) Would a another thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 2 cable be powerful enough (not ideal, but "good enough"?). 2) We'd prefer not to have a potentially heavy dongle hanging from the Oculus headset.
My three best guesses at alternatives are A) Get a USB-C "extension cord" + adapter + thunderbolt 2 cable
Not sure if port on the MacBook can be upgraded from Thunderbolt 2 to USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) C) I vaguely recall seeing a way to do this via WiFi (we have over 100 mbps speed so it seems potentially viable).
We don't have a ton of money to upgrade to a newer PC for this (and don't intend to be heavy gamers). I'd appreciate realistic recommendations.
MacBook Pro specs:
Graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 4000
Processor: Intel i5-3210M 2.50GHz
4 GB RAM
