Hi Wwafrr :welcome:

If the machine is not very far from the router to catch the wireless signal a simple solution can be to install and USB adapter like this.
This one its only an example if possible try to buy and adapter from the same manufacture of the router to get better compatibility.

Before buying check the requirements to install the adapter specially if the old machine in running a Operating System supported.

In case the machine is outside the wireless range then you should consider a Power Line solution like this it uses the house electrical installation to extend your network range.
