    After my personal tests:

    - attwifi with 4E:53:50:4F:4F:XX is now working on 9.0 but it requires No Encryption.
    - attwifi is no longer recognized as a Nintendo Zone in 9.0.
    - 9.0 users & 8.1 users cannot tag their StreetPass data each other via attwifi.
    - Change attwifi into NZ@McD1 then all the above shorts on 9.0 solved. But this also means (1) many tags from worldwide will flood into the German Nintendo Zones (2) Nintendo will pay more attention to NZ@McD1 than attwifi - Personally I think attwifi getting banned on 9.0 is intentional.

    Interesting.. I'll start testing my Spillpass setup at home.

    If we can get some more "firm" conclusions on anything that has changed, I'll update the HomePass MAC Spreadsheet with the relevant info.

    Probably need to give it a day or two to sort itself out.

    Hm, so if it really is the security that's causing a problem, has anyone tried setting up MAC filtering on their attwifi? I'm hesitant to leave an open attwifi network up, mostly because it causes a lot of phones and devices to automatically connect.

    Trying this now, but doesn't seem to be getting any at the moment. Cycling also seems to be off for some reason, and my router won't switch from 00:0D:67:15:2D:82....weird. That seems to be a router issue though, so I'll mess with that for a bit.

    Please leave a note to me before any changes to spreadsheet, my server uses it as a MAC address source and may broke several lists if something happend.
    I'm testing with the single prime MAC and attwifi this night to confirg if it will repeat in 8 hours, the rest I will try to check tomorrow. I'm not able to check the windows method for several weeks unfortunately.

    I have an open system AP with MAC filter enabled, so maybe this is your issue?

    If I'm understanding you correctly, I have a similar setup. I have two routers, the main router for the house (non-streetpass) and a second (streetpass) which is an open network, attwifi as the SSID and mac filtering only allowing my 3DS and a friends. Any other settings I should try? Maybe disconnect my 3DS from the primary wifi altogether for testing?

    EDIT: It still doesn't seem to be cycling through the MAC's though. Set it to just set 49, and using telnet to try reseting nzone and it's just staying on the original MAC. Need to try something else though.

    It is working exactly the same for European 3DS, while attwifi before 9.x also was glowing but Nintendo Zone itself was accessible only when Australia is selected in 3DS settings. _The Cloud was the only known way to access the russian Nintendo Zone.

    Did it work before? Just run
    Code:
    rm /tmp/nzone.macs
    /tmp/nzone BASE1
    
    It should set the prime MAC and you shoulg get a streetpass soon. If your mac is not changing there is a possibility that at the time your 3DS checked this AP there was no FW9-compatible streetpass data for it, and now it just in a cooldown. While setting the prime mac is a guarantee that there is a new data outthere.

    I'll give that a shot now and get back to you in an hour or so.

    EDIT: I know it hasn't been long, but figured I'd post this: when the 3DS is closed and I open it quickly, the top left where it says internet says "streetpass" and then quickly changes to internet as it connects. So it seems it's working, just not getting any actual hits yet. Again, I'll let it sit for a while and see what happens.

    MAC filtering should work just fine.

    Sure I definitely will leave you a note. I wouldn't change anything drastic anyways, it would more or less be new instructions on the main page. I doubt the MAC list will change at all (unless they are suddenly deemed sterile - which I highly doubt is the case).

    Really still working perfectly.
    But only without security key.
    (i change mac and work all attempts)

    Maybe the problem is only the security key.

    I am there with you, do not like people to use my network and use MAC filtering which works perfectly fine here with using a MAC change script. Though be aware that MAC filtering isn't really airtight, so if you really want to keep it out of your network, just use your router behind another router so that the networks are seperated!

    Can confirm that MAC filtering on an otherwise unsecured attwifi works fine with 9.0, getting plenty of passes as usual.

    Edit: This is on a DD-WRT router, for those curious, not a Windows setup.

    How to configure an insecure attwifi? I don't know how to do it with cmd.exe.

    This is just guessing, but try to set the options again, but without the key option, like:

    Stop network first
    Code:
    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
    set the options again, but without passphrase
    Code:
    netsh wlan set hostednetwork ssid=attwifi
    and start it again with
    Code:
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

    Also just got confirmation from a friend running 8.X that they're still able to pass me on 9.0.

    From what I've read, Windows doesn't allow you to have an unsecured hosted network, which sucks for us :/
