I have successfully flashed tails on my usb. I have alfa awus036ach wifi adapter. My question is, how do I make it work with tails?March 8, 2021 at 6:17 pm #52909
Not all wireless adapters will work on TAILS, if you have plugged it and it’s not recognized then maybe it won’t work. You can check for supported adapters here:

What about QubesOs? Would it work on that. I have alfa awus036ach adapter that I recently bought. In order to access deep web, you people use the secured TAILS or QUBES, right? Whhich adapter do you use?

To make a wireless adpter to work you need to install the drivers needed in the template you want to use the adapter with, check this article:
It is meant for an atheros chipset but the main procedure is the same.
I personally use the built-in wifi card and spoof the mac address, as I’m not doing anything illegal and darkweb is not frobidden in my country that’s enough for me.

I have purchased your “Ultimate Dark Web” course and I’ve successfully installed tails on a usb drive. I cannot find a good wifi adapter that will work with tails. I have reviewed the forum and various links provided and even bought from the “accepted” tails usb wifi adapter list. I have purchased the three following wifi adapters with no success:
I’m stuck and not sure how to proceed. Any advice or guidance would be much appreciated.

What’s the exact model of each adapter?
What’s the exact error? Can you elaborate? Also some screenshots will help.

The three models are:
TP-Link Archer T4U V3
When I successfully boot tails from my USB in the upper right hand corner where it is supposed to recognize available wifi/wired networks there is not option to select any networks in the drop down. It is not recognizing any adapter I try. Do I need to install drivers in tails first? My tails is working great because I tried it on an old laptop and was able to connect to the internet via the laptop’s internal wifi adapter.
Thanks for your help,

According to the official documentation there’s no information related to the RTL8812BU chipset:
But here they mention 2 adapter that should work fine with TAILS:
Is almost at the bottom.
Hope it helps!
