    I have had my wireless switch on the whole time I've had my 3ds. I was wondering if you have it off does that affect the streetpass and other non internet related functions. Does the wireless being off stop streetpass stuff and whatever else goes on?

    Yes you need the switch to be on for Streetpass to work.

    To use streetpass, your 3DS has to be in sleep mode, not off.
