This technique uses the command line.

1. When starting Tails, [[set up an administration
password|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]].
1. Set up an administration password
2. To find out the index of the wireless device,
open a [[root
terminal|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password#open_root_terminal]],
and execute the following command:
Start Tails and [[set up an administration
password|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]].
rfkill list
<a id="step_2"></a>
The output should be something vaguely similar to:
2. Find out the index of the wireless device
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: gps0: GPS
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
Open a [[root
terminal|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password#open_root_terminal]].
The device index is the number that starts the relevant device's
three-lines section. In this example, the index of the Bluetooth
device is 1, while the index of the GPS device is 2. Yours are
probably different.
Execute the following command in the root terminal:
3. To enable the wireless device,
execute the following command in the root terminal, replacing
`[index]` with the index found at [[step 2|wireless#step_2]]:
rfkill list
rfkill unblock [index]
The output should be something vaguely similar to:
Here is an example of the command to execute, yours is probably
different:
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

device is 1, while the index of the GPS device is 2. Yours are

4. To verify that the wireless device was enabled,
execute the following command in the root terminal again:
3. Enable the wireless device
rfkill list
Execute the following command in the root terminal, replacing
`[index]` with the index found at [[step 2|wireless#step_2]]:
This output should be very similar to the one seen at step 2, with one
difference: the device enabled at step 3 should not be soft
blocked anymore.
rfkill unblock [index]
In this example, the output would be:
