    If my thread title wasn't clear, I am wondering if we can utilize a hotkey to toggle the Wifi "switch" on the N3DS mid-game. Is there a cfw that can do this already?

    I'm wondering, has this been done before, or is it even possible?

    I haven't seen anything in the homebrew space to do this. Doesn't mean it's not there but I haven't come across a tool like that.

    I'd say it's impossible unless it were some kind of NTR CFW plugin or something.
    All you can do is MAC filter your 3DS on your router to block internet access on your 3DS temporarily, then disable it when you're done. You'll just need a computer at your side to do this.

    you could just hit the home button and turn wifi off while the game is still running in the background...

    Seems like a good idea for an NTR plugin, would be faster to execute over hitting home and toggling the wi-fi from there.

    I'm guessing they want to be able to do it mid-game so they can dupe in animal crossing or something similar.

    Won't work with HANS though. I suppose it might be possible with HANS to make a hotkey that disables wifi.
