When I try to connect to tor the onion circuits window pops up but only displays a blue bar at the top saying "You are not connected to tor yet..." It gives no circuits and no status. I turned off mac spoofing, and i configured the time in the terminal. I am using a TP-link 300mbps wifi card and i can access the unsafe browser without issue.

  • Why are you setting the time using the terminal? Tails should set the time automatically on boot.

It takes some time to integrate the node into Tor network, on first run it can be even 5-10 minutes sometimes, so basically it's OK. You can post your Tor log and we will be able to take a look deeper if you need it

  • "integrate the node into Tor network"? What does that even mean?

  • 100% bootstrap + directory update. If you'll measure the speed of circuit creation and other speed metrics - you'll see the speedup break, and tracing the things shows the "updated" status of the directory table
