    Hi~ I'm in this thread now
    Maybe one of the reasons that Japanese aren't keen on it is the high 3DS density there?

    For everyone who wants to create an AP with Windows7/8
    You need:
    A. a computer/laptop/tablet with built-in wireless network card
    or
    B. a computer/laptop/tablet with a wifi USB dongle (wireless USB adapter)

    (*Because of the limitation of WIN7/8, the second hex digit of the MAC must be 2, 6, a or e)
    (*ethernet is unnecessary)
    (*don't need any software to change MAC)
    (*don't need any software to create hosted network with built-in wireless network card)


    =>If you are using [A. a computer with built-in wireless network card]

    Fist, change your MAC
    1.open [Device Manager]
    2.find your wireless network card under [Network adapters], and double click on it
    3.click [Advanced] tab
    4.select something like [Network Address] or [Locally Administered Address] in [Property]
    section
    5.select [Value:] and enter the MAC address you want ([Not Present] is the default)
    6.press [OK]

    Then, create a hosted network
    1.
    WIN7: press [Start], enter [cmd] and hit [Enter], right click on [cmd] and select [Run as
    asministrator]
    WIN8: open [charm bar], press [Search], enter [cmd], right click on [cmd] and select [Run as
    asministrator]
    2.input [netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=attwifi key=password](change "password"
    to any passwork you want)
    3.input [netsh wlan start hostednetwork]
    (*you can input [netsh wlan stop hostednetwork] to turn off the hostednetwork)
    (*you can input [netsh wlan show hostednetwork] to show the configure)
    4.go to [Control Panel]=>([Network and Internet]=>)[Network and Sharing Center]
    5.you will see [attwifi] there, it will show [Local Area Connetction*##] after [Connections:]
    (## could be any number)
    6.find the network which is connected to the Internet, click the words after [Connections:]
    to open the status
    7.click [Properties], click [Sharing] tab, check [Allow other network users to connect
    through this computer's Internet connection], and select [Local Area Connetction*##] (the
    connection of the hostednetwork[attwifi]) (maybe you don't need to select because you only
    have two connections)
    8.press [OK]

    Finally, change your 3DS network settings
    1.open your 3DS, open [System Settings], click [Internet Settings], search [attwifi] and
    enter the passwork
    2.close [System Settings]
    Last step: turn your 3DS into sleep mode (suggest) and wait for streetpass!
    (*you can't use nintendo zone app because your are using an AP with encryption)
    (*your hosted network will stop automatically whenever you change your MAC)


    =>If you are using [B. a computer with a wifi USB dongle (wireless USB adapter)]

    Fist, change your wifi USB dongle's MAC
    1.open [Device Manager]
    2.find your wifi USB dongle under [Network adapters], and double click on it
    3.click [Advanced] tab
    4.select something like [Network Address] or [Locally Administered Address] in [Property]
    section
    5.select [Value:] and enter the MAC address you want ([Not Present] is the default)
    6.press [OK]

    Then, change your soft-ap's SSID to [attwifi]
    you could either retain the encryption or remove the encryption
    If you remove the encryption:
    Just turn your 3DS into sleep mode (suggest) and wait for streetpass!
    If you retain the encryption:
    1.open your 3DS, open [System Settings], click [Internet Settings], search [attwifi] and
    enter the passwork
    2.close [System Settings]
    Last step: turn your 3DS into sleep mode (suggest) and wait for streetpass!
    (*you can't use nintendo zone app because your are using an AP with encryption)

    ==================================================================
    Because I'm a Taiwanese (Chinese), it's hard for me to make this [HOW-TO]. Maybe there is
    something that I didn't express clearly. I'll be glad if someone points out my mistakes.

    So this script will automatically run macshift. So I don't have to manually type the command for macshift?

    I have this working, but just a quick question--does the 3DS need to be closed to receive streetpasses through this method? I've tried leaving the system open and never receive a notification, but when I close it and change the MAC address, the green light pops right up.

    Yes the 3ds need to be in sleepmode for it to work!

    Yes, just extract everything in the zip into one folder, Macshift is already included.

    It cycles through them automatically.


    Also, UPDATE TO VERSION 2!

    You can now skip MACs, and choose how much time to take between cycling MACs.

    Just tested, still seems to work fine. Took a minute for it to cycle it seems, but notification just popped up.

    And also thanks for the sleep mode response! Mii's name is GiSS

    I have been playing the street pass games and have been getting hits just fine. Obviously, the 3ds was open. The green light just blinks for about a second then stops vs stays on when closed.

    No, you could just leave it open. Yesterday the green light blinked while I was using swapnote.

    How do we get this to work if our connection is hardwired? For instance, when I go to the Network Connections screen, I only see "Local Area Connection." So how could I be sure the router I'm using displays as "Wi-Fi"?

    Also, thanks for the answers. I know I've gotten a regular streetpass while the system was open, but didn't seem to be getting them while on the main screen of system while open.

    You would need an additional Wifi adapter or card

    can i get some help?
    Currently using a linksys/cisco 2500 router flashed with DDWRT v-24 sp.2 mini. Unable to get an internet connection. Have tried the mac clone instructions since my DSL doesnt not use PPP0E, but not sure if i am doing them correctly

    now cloning the MAC adress disconnect me from the router and i cant change the setting through the default ip. Probably going to just return the router if internet cant even com out
