Scientific linux 7.5 wifi driver problem

Hello everyone, I am new to linux forum. Indeed, I was using Debian and I decided to change to scientific linux 7.5, however, I am now stuck with setting the Wifi Drive. I followed the steps in the this link ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG_EHEWHQuM) which is explaining how to get the wifi drive for fedora25. so I followed the steps, but for centOS 7 instead of fedora. Yet, I was unable to accomplish the task. first of all when I used rpm -ivh code it was giving me something like that:
[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -i wl-kmod-6_30_223_271-5.el7.elrepo.nosrc.rpm

2) No akmod packages found, nothing to do. [ OK ]
I am also getting this message when I run akmods which indicates that the driver has not been installed.

3) The last problem is that my Broadcom. The Broadcom I have is B03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01). My Laptop is Acer Aspire E 15 E5-571G-54CG. I am unable to download this Broadcom version because I cant find it online for my laptop.

I will apreciate it if any one has any idea of how to install the wifi to my laptop.

regards
