    Welcome.

    Please start by installing a current 64-bit Ubuntu or a lighter flavor such as Lubuntu or Xubuntu, given the age of the computer.
    32-bit architecture is as good as dead and not required unless the hardware only supports 32-bit, not the case here.

    The WiFi must work out-of-the-box.

    I installed ubuntu 20,10
    then used three commands
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    then the problem solved.
