Connecting to a network

Puedes conectar a una red usando una conexión por cable, Wi-Fi o banda móvil:

  1. Abre el menú del sistema en la esquina superior derecha.

    • If a wired connection is detected, Tails automatically connects to the network.

    • To connect to a Wi-Fi network, choose Wi-Fi Not Connected and then Select Network.

    • To connect to a mobile broadband network, choose Mobile Broadband.

    It is currently impossible to connect to a network using:

  2. Luego de establecer una conexión a la red:

    • Si ya puedes acceder a Internet, Tor arranca automáticamente.

    • If you need to log in to a captive portal before being granted access to the Internet, see our documentation on logging in to captive portals.

Para más información abre la ayuda de GNOME y elige Red, web, correo-e y chat.

Si tienes miedo a ser identificado como usuario de Tails en tu red, lee nuestra documentación sobre huella digital en la red.

Troubleshooting Wi-Fi not working

If your Wi-Fi interface is not working, either:

  • There is no Wi-Fi option in the system menu:

  • The interface is disabled when starting Tails or when plugging in your USB Wi-Fi adapter:

    Notification about network card being disabled

    In this case, you can disable MAC spoofing to get your Wi-Fi interface to work in Tails. Disabling MAC spoofing has security implications, so read carefully our documentation about MAC spoofing before doing so.

To connect to the Internet, you can try to either:

  • Use an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi if possible. Wired interfaces work much more reliably than Wi-Fi in Tails.

  • Buy a USB Wi-Fi adapter that works in Tails:

    If you find another USB Wi-Fi adapter that works in Tails, please let us know. You can write to tails-testers@boum.org (public mailing list) or tails@boum.org (private email).

  • Check in our list of known Wi-Fi issues if there is a workaround to get your Wi-Fi interface to work in Tails.

Using Tor bridges or a local proxy

Para conectarte a Tor a través de puentes o configurar un proxy de acceso a Internet, necesitas activar la configuración adicional de Tor cuando arrancas Tails.

Modifying and saving your network settings

Para modificar tu configuración de red, por ejemplo para decidir si te conectas automáticamente o no a una red, haz lo siguiente:

  1. Abre el menú del sistema en la esquina superior derecha.

  2. Haz click en el botón System para abrir la configuración del sistema.

  3. Elige Red.

Si quieres reutilizar tu configuración o las contraseñas de las redes wireless en tus próximas sesiones puedes activar la funcionalidad persistente Conexiones de Red.
