    1. Don't accept the user agreement so Spotpass is always off, but you already accepted.
    2. Fill the Wifi connections with fake ones
    3. Make sure wireless is OFF unless you're on the network that you perform step 4 on.
    4. Block the update server.
    Edit: With blocking the update server, you're able to use the internet browser and other things that don't need to be connected to Nintendo or updated to use, if there is anything else...

    Just go into Spotpass settings(Inside internet settings) and set everything to off/disabled.

    Turn on parental controls so no one can muck up your settings as well.

    did you already download the update? if so i'm not sure that disabling spotpass will help

    if it makes you feel any better i also have a n3ds but i was lucky enough to set it up in a rural area with no wifi
