    Change the security settings. The 3ds needs to use AES. My router is set to TKIP/AES and works fine. I remember having to change to this setting because when I originally got my 3ds, it wouldn't connect.

    Try rebooting the router? Making sure your ip & dns settings are correct? Entered the new routers password & SSID correctly?

    Does it at least see the router?

    Have you checked that the type of wifi is compatible?

    edit:
    By type I mean both the standard eg. G/N and the frequency 2.4ghz/ 5ghz.

    I'd suggest removing the network key.

    Did you try changing the wireless encryption type as suggested? The DS should be set to use WPA2-PSK (AES), while the router should be set to WPA2-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES), or WPA2-PSK (TKIP). Try all three, in that order.

    Well you certainly don't want that. I also would advise strongly against using WPA, you should most definitely use a form of WPA2. Preferably WPA2-AES.

    What has this got to do with Homebrew and emulators?

    Try an alternate connection method if possible, such as Wifi Protected Setup.
