    The title pretty much covers it, but I'm looking for the cheapest router currently out there that can support DD-WRT and the script that automatically cycles the MAC to match different Nintendo Zone relays at regular intervals. That last part is the most important.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Been a long time since I've dabbled in this but last I ever heard you could use a cheap raspberry pic but not sure what after that. Is your 3ds modded for homebrew? If yes than download JKSM, it's a save manager but allows you to get 300 coins whenever you want and you could "hire" characters unless you need them for like Mario & Sonic olympics or something else.

    Except for the fact that other 3DS owners Miis give out better stuff and can be leveled up as opposed to hiring Miis with coins. Not to mention occasionally you'll streetpass Gold Pants Miis that give out even better stuff.

    I'm after the street passes, not the coins, as was said by the other commenter actual streetpasses get you better stuff.

    I'm aware of the Raspberry Pi option, but trying to see if there's a simple router that can do what I want for less.

    There is the option of using a wifi repeater and bridging it to your current router. Its what I use for my homepass setup I got

    Can it automatically cycle MACs? If so what model is it?

    @Raven1988 cheapest option? RaspberryPi2 (35$) + a usable Wifi adapter on adafruit for about 7$ and if you have a spare MicroSD otherwise a cheapo will work. if you want to skip the wifi adapter for about teh same cost, a Pi3.
