    hi, sorry if I have posted in the wrong section.

    I am currently on holiday in America and want to connect my new 3ds to the hotels Wi-fi.

    It just will no connect- I have tried to go onto the log in site on the browser but it will not load.
    I have read that due to an update, the browser doesn’t allow enough time to load.

    Is there anyway around this? I do not have a laptop with me, I just have an iPhone and iPad but I am unable to tether as I am abroad.

    Thanks I’m advance!

    Out of luck I think.
    Can the iPhone not tether wifi connections as well? Android does that.

    I had the same problem in my uni accommodation. It's not going to work on its own. Do you have a laptop with you? Then you could install Connectify, that's how I do it

    Late response but yeah you're out of luck. Guest Wi-Fi (and most public Wi-Fi) requires you to pull up a page in a web browser to actually get internet access. But the 3DS requires full internet access to actually do anything involving the internet, preventing you from going to the log in/access page.

    You'd need to use some sort of wi-fi tethering program like Virtual Router (Windows) or similar applications.
