    if your 3DS can access it, some devices do not connect. I have a HTC running a Wifi program, and my iPAD connects, as does my WII, but the Ps3 does not.

    Does it let you choose what kind of access point you're setting up? If it's something simple like WEP or an unprotected connection it shouldn't be much of a problem.

    I've noticed that whilst anything can connect to my HTC Desire HD, it's an entirely different story on my dad's HTC Wildfire. The quality of the wifi adaptor inside the phone (and in the connecting devices) probably also determines how successfully the wifi hotspot will work.

    You need need to check if your device and that software support ad-hoc, infrastructure, or both.

    A DS cannot connect to an ad-hoc device and requires an infrastructure connection.

    Even if it wil connect this does not guarantee it will be useful for gaming. Wireless data connections can vary greatly depending on location and provider.
