So, did you mean I should go and configure virtual private network (VPN)?
No. Have you configured the basic network settings? I believe the answer is no.

I found that two Broadcom 43 and STA wireless drivers are not active and I can`t acitivise them..
I'm not sure what you mean by this. The b43 driver is loaded. See the lsmod output. This is listing your loaded kernel modules.

Can you find Network Manager? Have you done any config there?

I asked you before, did you use the cutter program to get, and install the broadcom firmware? If you do not know what I'm asking, just say so.

If none show up, you may have a driver problem, firmware missing, or some other issue.
please run these commands and share the outputs with us:
uname -a -m -p
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

it mite work with this driver:
