    I have some questions about homepass.

    In the google doc is has PRIME MACs what are these exactly, are they official Nintendo relays or spoofs and why do they have suggested games and does that matter?

    On the Nintendo zone page it lists 6 Nintendo World NYC access points. Im guessing these are legit Nintendo spots but there's a big red warning saying without the real SSID you wont pass with real people if you use attwifi. Does this warning apply to those 6 Nintendo world points or only the access points listed below it? Should you use NZ@McD1 or attwifi with the Nintendo world APs?

    Last the first Nintendo world AP says "NDS-Guest". Is that the SSID for that AP or is there anything special about it since its highlighted?

    It applies to those five locations as well as any other real-world locations. If you only want to exchange data with other homepass users, use attwifi/NZ@McD1 with the 4Exx addresses, otherwise you have to use the mac addresses of real locations (there is a lot for attwifi) to possibly target users in certain states.

    NDS-Guest is probably from a real world hotspot but I have not used it for a very long time.
