Your machine is 10 years old now. Due to the whitelist you can't use newer wifi adapter. You have to use USB adapter. Many USB adapters don't have Bluetooth. Please try

Early March 2020, for testing, I bought the following wifi card for my 11 years old machine

Unfortunately my machine uses different format, not M.2, physically won't fit therefore I went to the shop and swap to the following one (I did not have to pay more, they are same price):

And it works perfectly, get same result (download speed) with the 1G wired on same machine.

 

Regards.
