    Hi guys, i have an aluminium case on my 3DS and was wondering if any of you out there have noticed any wifi issues wit the case on? The reason i ask is that i'm off to london tomorrow and hopefully i'll pick up lots of streetpass hits, but i want to make sure my 3DS has maximum range, so if necessary i will take my metal case off, BUT thats a major pain in the arse, so if someone out there can tell me whether it would affect it or not that would be great!
    cheers!!

    Why is that such a pain in the ass... It takes like ten seconds.

    I'm sure that Senor Cockonface, the official streetpass ambasador of all the Cool Kids will make his way past the case.

    I advise you to take the case off as you travel through London.

    Aluminum blocks radio waves so you probably won't get a good reception.
