    Did you try following your quote?
    How many IP addresses does your router have in its pool, and how many are being used?

    Okay, fixed the problem about 2 hours ago. It turns out my router is busted up or something. It wont work with wireless anymore, just wired. So I hooked up my old router to the new (the one that wont take wireless connections anymore..) one and now I have two wireless connections. One works, the other does not.

    a question about SP (streetpass) which i have always wondered.

    How many systems can the 3DS interact in one time with SP (simultaneously)? Imagine having 100 3DSes with SP enabled... [IMG] I wonder what will happen...

    I have a quick question regarding streetpass.

    Is there a limit to how often you can streetpass with the same person a day?

    I ask as I can normally only get one a day from my brother, but yesterday we streetpassed twice, I'm finding it difficult to replicate it so am not sure how the console decides when to streetpass or not.

    I'm going back to my house later today so won't be able to test further until I next visit my parents.

    With same person I bet once? The whole purpose of StreetPass is to let you (or rather your mii) frolic with other miis and not just one. [IMG]

    Yeah when I read the post I went to search my box for the second stylus lol. It only comes with one afaik.


    Does anyone know how to check the system version or firmware of the 3DS? I just updated mine, but I'm not sure what FW it has right now.

    Nope. We only know its ARM. IGN said theres 2 but I don't know if that confirmed or not. (especially since they were wrong about everything else.)

    Maybe a bit late, but if you go to 'System Settings' the firmware version is displayed on the top screen.

    This seems like a nice place to put this.

    Does anyone else's 3DS have very poor quality sound? Like really soft, anything drowns it out.
    I don't know anyone else with one to compare so I'm dumbfounded.
    Is this a technical malfunction I can get repaired?
    Or is that just the sound of the system?

    With some applications, the 3DS emits a very quiet sound but with others (like Excitebike), it's extremely loud. I have noticed problems with the 3DS sound quality. If I'm not in a totally silent room, I have trouble hearing it.

    Although, I would say that's more of a problem with the application that's being used than the system.
    You could contact Nintendo to see if it's a problem with your 3DS.

    Haha yeah I see what you mean about the certain apps. Glad to see it's an app malfunction rather than the system itself.
    Thanks alot! [IMG]

    How are the regions separated for the 3DS ? How many different regions are there altogether ?

    Much like the TV regions: NTSC U/C (Americas), NTSC J (Japan), PAL (Europe and Australia)
    Just not their names.

    But one thing stupid: Singapore's region is supposed to fall under Japan (official: NTSC J) but in the end we got US ones for the 3DS. I want my Miku! [IMG]

    There are 3 official regions;
    - North America
    - Japan
    - EU/Australia

    Apparently, there is also an Asian version but I don't have much details on that aside from a couple of threads.

    Those are sold in Singapore as 'local sets'. Basically they are US sets with no Club Nintendo and with a Japanese design box.

    When you turn a 3DS on and place it on top of a DS lite, it thinks it is open.

    *edit* It does work with the DSi.
