    I see. I guess I'm lucky to have a WiFi stick that supports AP mode over a bridged connection (ZyDAS 1211b).

    Here's a working link to the file from somebunny: http://gbatemp.net/attachments/wifi_zone-sh-zip.3805/ . Use the link in the main post.

    Edit: Looks like it already has the MAC address and additional edits done. :)

    Well lets switch to 4E:53:50... it will be compatible with windows and "NSP" in ascii, acronym for nintendo street pass. The rest 3 octets will be used for titles CTR code so we can have fully readable ascii representation

    Thats really weird can you post what it appears when you type iwconfig ?

    EVERYONE! I update the topic for using attwifi and a new linux script that has the first 6 macs from the list. Please download it and check the guide again

    The four items that show up:

    lo no wireless extensions

    etho0 no wireless extenstions

    eth2 ieee 802.11abg blah blah (internal wireless Broadcom card)

    wlan1 ieee 802.11bg SSID: "my network" (not the real name, this is the dongle)

    Try using it that way, that's just a name anyway

    Okay, so a quick google check suggested that I can change the driver for the broadcom card to something that may work.

    Now I get eth1 as the internal, and wlan1 is still the dongle.

    Anyway, resuming with guide.

    dicamarques sir it partially works, The Nintendo Zone indeed shows up, however no people found yet...maybe because forgot that part:
    I will try to check this today/tomorrow/soon, I still had 2 connection set-ups saved in 3DS, I will delete them and check around, especially that
    Happy to hear that, I will re-download the script and then check everything once again ^_^

    I'm having the same issue. My SSID and MAC address are all lined up, my 3DS connects to it, detects a Nintendo Zone and has internet access, and it's the only connection setup on the 3DS, but I'm not getting any streetpasses. My 3DS has the latest update. I'm using a DD-WRT router to clone my MAC address for what it's worth. Anyone else having the same problem?

    Maybe your router is not spoofing the mac correctly. Just got a hit

    Any idea why that would be or how I would fix it? I've tried lots of different MAC addresses and they all went through, but no streetpasses.

    Now I'm using the following as cron jobs for DD-WRT (2 options):
    Code:
     
    #Type 1 : 32 MACS
    0-59/6 * * * * root ifconfig eth1 down && ifconfig eth1 hw ether 40:53:50:4F:4F:4`/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1` && ifconfig eth1 up
    3-59/6 * * * * root ifconfig eth1 down && ifconfig eth1 hw ether 4E:53:50:4F:4F:4`/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1` && ifconfig eth1 up
     
    #Type 2 : 512 MACS
     
    0-59/6 * * * * root ifconfig eth1 down && ifconfig eth1 hw ether 40:53:50:4F:4F:`/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1``/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1` && ifconfig eth1 up
    3-59/6 * * * * root ifconfig eth1 down && ifconfig eth1 hw ether 4E:53:50:4F:4F:`/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1``/bin/cat /proc/interrupts | /usr/bin/md5sum | /usr/bin/cut -b 1` && ifconfig eth1 up
    
    This cycles every three minutes. Choose only one type!
    Type 1 cycles 32 different MACS, from @SPOO* and NSPOO*
    Type 2 cycles 512 MACS, from @SPO** and NSPO**

    I am now using type 2, so we can expect a hit every three minutes once all MACS are seeded . This way, in half an hour I should have ten Mii Plaza hits. Type 1 should be completely seeded by now, or in a couple of hours, when people changes from @SPOOF to NSPOOF .
    Using attwifi as SSID.

    I definitely have the same problem. Really don't know what to do. Like you said, mine connects to Nintendo Zone just fine, which is about as clear a sign that things are working that I know of. My ssid has been _The Cloud and MAC as either 40:53:50:4F:4F:46 or 40:53:50:4F:4F:47.
