    Hi, firstly thanks for this useful cycler/macro...
    If it's not too much hassle is it possible for you to add in this command after it has changed MAC addresses...

    Code:
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    This is for just us with the Atheros Wifi Adapter chip on our machines, whenever you perform the MAC change, it disables the hosted network...

    If it's ok can you make a version of your script with said functionality? Much appreciated and thank you for all the help.

    I suppose you could mess around with the profile settings first, try different ones. If that doesn't work, you could try using some other settings. I'm using slightly older Android firmware (4.0.4), so maybe you need that no-tether interface option checked if you have 4.2 or higher.

    I have no fucking idea.
    I can't find the option to change the MAC address on my phone, the 3DS doesn't even recognizeit as a NZone spot when its called attwifi. Help?

    Phone; HTC Sensation on Jelly Bean 4.2.2

    Idk how to or where the options for editing Mac is, but it isn't in the inbuilt tether app...

    You'll have to root your phone and change system files. Or use that wifi Tether app.

    I have no fucking idea.
    I forgot to mention, it has CyanogenMod 10.2 so it is rooted. And what WiFi tether app? There's 100's. Is there a specific one that will give me the option go change/spoof MAC address?


    EDIT: the 3DSs said an Nzone is here but it couldn't connect to it....

    False, it doesn't need to be in sleep mode at all. In fact, if you don't use it in sleep mode, it'll search for a Nintendo Network every 30 seconds, maybe even less. If you have it closed it's more like 5 minutes (unless you restart the 3DS and close it). Downside is that the green streetpass light only burns for a few seconds and you might miss it (but you can check messages to see if you got any). I've done this before, which is why I know it works.

    Hello. First of all, I would like to congratulate everyone that has contributed to this topic. You guys don’t know how nice is to finally have a chance to eventually enjoy the Mii Plaza. Here in Brazil it’s not only really hard to get StreetPasses, but there’s also no plan for relay points and Nintendo Zones anytime soon. Sadly, I’ve not been able to make it work yet.

    I'm using a Windows 7 with a wired connection and an unused wireless network named Wi-Fi, which I've configured with the MAC address as oriented. Using the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, I created the attwifi network, connected my 3DS to it and now I can access both the internet and the Nintendo Zone page, but I've not yet been able to StreetPass anyone. In fact, the 3DS, when closed, only rarely communicate with the attwifi, which might be related to the problem.

    Either way, that’s why I came asking for advice. Anyone has any idea how I should proceed? I’ve updated a photo of my “Network Connections” page just in case I messed up somewhere. It’s in Portuguese: http://i.imgur.com/kI58g9G.jpg . By the way, I don’t know why there are two Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapters, but only the later has been used until now. It might be related. Or not.

    Hi there,

    I have set it up this morning, and the Nintendo Zone Icon appears on my 3DS XL. However, is this trick region specific? Seeing as I am in South Africa, I selected: NintendoSpotpass1. When I open the Nintendo Zone app, it gives me an error message: 013-8805 - Could not find page.

    Is this because I would have to be located in the EU region in order for this to work? Please help.

    I have no fucking idea.
    It won't let me grant Superuser, it Denies it straight away. It works with errors and failed with MAC changing....

    Tried both W8 and Linux methods, the Windows method gives me the error "hosted netwok can't be started" when I change my wireless adapter MAC adress, but once i restore it to it's default the hosted network works again, and the Linux Method shows the comand properly, but my 3DS doesn't detect the spoofed NZone...

    It's not region locked.
    Check your Superuser app.

    Thanks for all your efforts, I followed your instructions to the letter, but still nothing here... Weird, I am starting to think the micro build has some things removed involving the rotating scripts.
