    1) Is their wireless on?
    2) Did the person create a Mii? And activated streetpass of MiiPlaza?

    streetpass: meeting someone in the street randomly who also has a 3ds and obtaining their mii

    spotpass: meeting someone online and randomly obtaining their mii (you also need a game that supports spotpass like mario kart so you can get a spotpass in the 1st place)

    so as you mentioned the internet it's not streetpass you are talking about, you should have said spotpass instead, on top of that if you want to get a mii from a streetpass they have to create a mii so you can receive it on your 3ds.

    They both should be in sleep mode when a streetpass happens. It doesn't work so well when the systems are on.

    The 3DS hasn't been out for 4 years... Anyway, your friend and you should both shut off your 3DS's and walk away from each other. Then, slowly walk past each other, with the 3DS's on. My neighbor and I used to have trouble StreetPassing each day, but when we started doing this, it was fixed. Hope this helps :D

    I don't think that you understand: Streetpass = I can walk pass you with my 3ds on with the wireless is on and if your is on with the wireless on, we will streetpass even though we are not friends.

    Here's a tip for more StreetPass: Bring it to work/school. If your boss/principle doesn't allow video game devices, just keep it in your backpack and don't use it at all! Not even to look if you've gotten a StreetPass! In this way, I've gotten 12 passes at the most, 3 at the least. And now I have 276 tags. (Jealous?) Remember, that if there's one troublemaker Nintendo Fanboy, there is another.

    Me and my brother also had this problem. Solution: simply walk out of wifi.s your connected to and walk pass each other and that should do the trick.

    Just go to the E3, and your 3DS will explode with StreetPasses!
    At least, I had lots of them, while being at the Gamescom 2011.
    You won't need to register Friends for StreetPass.

    But if you want to enjoy StreetPass, just buy another 3DS.
    Good side: Quicker Puzzle Completion.
    Bad side: It can be annoying at some point.

    This video exactly explains my activities, trice a day:

    YamiHoshi.nl: Why do you keep posting those bad quality videos? Kinda feels like spam or showing off.
    I mean explaining as text would've been enough.

    I just thought the TS just wanted to enjoy StreetPass, while he/she can't.
    Bad quality: It isn't, only the Frame Rate matters.
