The Google Chrome browser stopped supporting Windows XP over 2 years ago, and the Mozilla Firefox browser stopped supporting Windows XP last year.
Regardless of which browser you're using, that shouldn't affect whether your computer can connect to the internet with a wired ethernet device or with a wireless device.
If you're unable to connect to the internet with either device, it's my guess you have a hardware issue or a software issue or both.
Since we're not there to see what you have and how everything is set up, it's difficult to help you from here.
Do you have a computer-knowledgeable family member or friend who can help you?

windows updates is still working
There haven't been any Windows updates for XP since April 8, 2014. If you are getting Windows updates, that means your computer is more than 5 years behind with patches.

If you have a version of Office 2010 or newer, you will get Microsoft updates for that. Office 2010 will be patched until October 13, 2020. Is that the updates you are referring to?
