I can see in synaptic manager installed packages:
broadcom-sta-common
broadcom-sta-source

after:
sudo modprobe wl

there is no loaded modules wl in....

I dont want install Sparky to hd until I try it in live session especially the  wifi connection.
Could someone help me?
Thanks in advance.

edit:
my hp stream 13 has only wifi adaper.
I cant open driver device manager in live session to look if the broadcom drivers are loaded for the wifi adapter.

The module doesn't work out of the box.
It needs packages to be installed (other internet connection needed):
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-amd64 build-essential dkms broadcom-sta-modules

amd64 or 686-pae or 686 suffix
then:
sudo apt install wireless-bcm43142-dkms
then try:
sudo modprobe wl
