https://packages.debian.org/broadcom-sta-dkms is the link to the module page package. Download the module corresponding to the debian version.

Then dpkg -i nameofthepackage.deb (some other packages like the kernel headers have to be present on the system, see the wiki)

Why did you choose to bypass apt?

maybe he couldn't use APT before he set up broadcomm module in order to get

That is one answer ! It was easier for me to download the file with another system with working network, and install it on the box.

Just guessing - I'm curiour whether this was the case.

If I'm not mistaken, you will not receive possible future upgrades for a package this way.

He will, if the package was downloaded from debian archive and if he
downloaded jessie or older version.

The wiki page describes versions for jessie...

The https://packages.debian.org/broadcom-sta-dkm page shows versions for stretch too.
