To connect to Tor using bridges or configure a proxy to access the Internet,
you need to [[activate additional Tor configuration when starting Tails|first_steps/startup_options/network_configuration]].
After establishing a connection to a network:
a. If you can already access the Internet, Tor and
<span class="application">[[Vidalia]]</span> are automatically started.
b. If you need to log in to a captive portal before being granted access to
the Internet, then [[see the corresponding documentation|unsafe_browser]].
You can modify the settings of each recorded
network connection (for example to configure whether or not to
automatically connect to a Wi-Fi network). To do so, right-click on the
<span class="application">NetworkManager Applet</span>
and choose <span class="guimenu">Edit Connections...</span>
To modify your network settings, for example to configure whether or not
to automatically connect to a Wi-Fi network, do the following:
1. Open the system menu in the top-right corner.
