orange pi, what openbox iso?

I got one for free, and I think it was raspberry image uploaded to the card, however neither wifi or wire connections are working, also it looks like, well...

a. What openbox distro would you suggest? p.s. I think the model is pc plus (about year old), but not exactly sure.
b. or should I do eventually something even lighter, like dwm?

The Debian stuff at OrangePi's official website is not so well maintained and they hardly care about it (which is a common problem with all the small Chinese SBC manufacturers).
So even it's Ubuntu I'd go with Armbian. The community there is very helpful and the main dev is active plus available for questions.

Alpine Linux:

The support in OpenBSD is a little bare at the moment but it is improving, here are the installation instructions:
