    Hello!
    I "recently" got my 3DS, and have ran into some annoyances. The main one being the max of 3 WiFi networks. Since my parents are divorced, I live in two houses, and right there goes 2 of the networks, and the last one I am constantly changing between my School WiFi, Public WiFi, and my phone's WiFi... normally this wouldn't be horrible, but the issue is that every time I go in to change one I have to re-boot into EmuNand, which is very frustrating. Any way to have more than 3 WiFi networks? If I remember correctly the DSi had a section that was sort of "hidden" in the settings that had 3 more networks... anything on the 3DS, or any way to have an exploit add more? (Running a NA 3DS 9.0.0-20U, With a Gateway card, EmuNand is also 9.0.0-20U)

    Downgrade to 4.X so you don't need wifi to launch GW?

    That's not the issue. The issue is I want to play online, and I only have 3 WiFi slots to use...

    no way to do it.

    change both your parent's SSID and password to the same, to save a slot, if they allow you.

    Oh, you didn't say anything about it being for playing online in your original post
    I just assumed it was about launching GW


    ^^ I like this idea

    You could get a router and install dd-wrt or similar and set it up to repeat connections.

    There could be more mobile solutions available to do it. Maybe one of those pi things.

    well you could have 3 set up in sysnand, and 3 setup in emunand, , say when your at your mum's hold B when entering GW mode to boot up gateway mode in sysnand, so then you can play online in any situation without having to delete and set up multiple connections repeatedly, granted its not the best solution, as if your running cia installed games, you will likely run into save issues, and if sysnand and emunand are unlinked it would mean having to install the game twice, but if you play .3dz roms from the GW card it would do pretty much everything you need without needing to mess about with wifi

    also if your parents wont let you mess with the router settings, you could change the ssid and wifi password of your phone tethering to match that of either your mum or dads wifi, so then that is one slot saved, might also be worth seeing if either of their routers has a guest network feature, so you could then set up the guest network to match the other router, that way all existing devices use the existing settings, but it will also show up with your mum/dad's router configuration for the 3DS to connect to, combined with changing your phone to match, that would mean you would only need 1 space for both parents and your phone, 1 for public wifi, and 1 for the school network

    Gambia, The
    Why not using your phones Wifi as access point? Your device connects regular to WiFi and you use the device as access point.

    [Home WiFi] -> [phone WiFi] -> [3DS]

    This doesn't work unless the phone has two wifi chips. 3g -> wifi -> 3ds would work.

    This doesn't work. There is no way to forward a WiFi network like that via Android that I know of. It just turns off your WiFi (I use FoxFi)

    Click report and ask for it to be moved.

    EDIT:
    What wireless switches do you have at your parents'?

    That's OK, but it's better to ask a mod to move it for you (you can do so by reporting your own post) ;)
    Double posting threads will just cause more clutter.

    What do you mean "Wireless Switches"? Do you mean Routers?
