Ubuntu 8.04 not able to detect my Wireless card ,
I have done :

sudo lspci | grep -i network
it shows : 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 USB Controller (rev 01)

I have Dell laptop vostro 1400 series

But the blue light of WiFi is on.

Im a newbie.
Can anybody help how to configure the wireless card

Try this howto, read the wireless section.
Its for a BCM4311 and works like a charm in my BCM4328 too.
Good luck.

I had the same problem but solved it with the extensive info on
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Feisty_No-Fluff. It does describe how to get your BCM4310 working using ndiswrapper.

good luck
