    Hey all,
    I have been puzzling a while now, to create an home made accespoint in linux where the 3ds can connects to, or use it to connect to the NintendoZone.

    After a while I got everything workinge, that will say. I can create a hotspot, my tablet can connect to it and surf with it. The only thing here is, is that my 3DS wont recognize this point (even when scanning it doesn't see it), so I hope one of you can help me out.

    I use my network card from my laptop and a tp-link dongle
    software I am using:
    -linux
    -hostapd
    -dnsmasq

    my configuration
    hostapd:
    interface=wlan1
    driver=nl80211
    ssid=attwifi
    channel=6
    hw_mode=g

    dnsmasq:
    no-resolv
    # Interface to bind to
    interface=wlan1
    # Specify starting_range,end_range,lease_time
    dhcp-range=10.0.0.3,10.0.0.20,12h
    # dns addresses to send to the clients
    server=8.8.8.8
    server=8.8.4.4

    A script which I am running before starting hostapd:
    killall dnsmasq
    ifconfig wlan1 up 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
    sleep 2
    dnsmasq
    iptables --flush
    iptables --table nat --flush
    iptables --delete-chain
    iptables --table nat --delete-chain
    iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface wlan0 -j MASQUERADE
    iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface wlan1 -j ACCEPT
    sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

    after some googling i found out that it could be my DNS settings (it is advised to use 8.8.8.8). so I pinged the connection settings with my tablet and it says 10.0.0.1, and with dnsmasq killed 192.168.0.1.
    p.s. if i change 10.0.0.1 in the script before starting hostapd the connection could not get an ip adress.

    thanks in advance :D

    1 thing. Why are you trying to get Nintendo Zone?

    I had same issue testing Home Zone linux from tutorial "Have a homemade streetpass relay".

    So I moved to windows XP + Nintendo dongle option.

    I noticed wifi is set up with 802.11B only mode, I tried to configure it with linux but I had no luck...

    Could be the solution... or not ....
