    Is there anyway to bypass the 3-slot limit for wi-fi connections?

    Useless, takes less than 3 minutes to just delete one and reconnect to a new one

    But what if you didn't feel like keeping track of passwords every time you had to delete a connection for a new one?

    Then maybe you shouldn't connect to the internet everywhere you go?

    I don't se why you would need more than 3, but the settings would be hard to modify I would think.

    I mean, if you REALLY REALLY want more connections, then your only options are: do it yourself or pay someone else to do it for you (assuming it's even possible) I don't think anyone would go to all the trouble of adding more connections for free

    Sorry buddy :)

    There is a way to do a "4th" internet connection. But it isn't as secure.
    First -> delete your home internet connection
    Second -> Make a homepass router
    Third -> Do not setup MAC address changing on a schedule

    Now your 3ds will auto connect to the homepass router (attwifi) and you now have a 4th slot. Just one that you can not edit. If you setup Mac address shuffling, every time the Mac address changes you will lose your internet connection. This is a rather annoying problem if you go with some of the larger sets allowing you to change the MAC address every few minutes. So if you use this method, do not have the MAC address change, unless it changes when you will not be online (aka change once a day at midnight)

    I have been looking at another possibility, but you could kill the open wifi connections you get at different stores with your 3ds. And until I get my old 3ds back up and running, I'm not willing to test it out. But if you want to take a better look into it it is rather a simple idea.

    conf:/hotspot.conf

    This file contains a listing of all hotspots the 3ds will connect to. Some do have the security keys. The idea would be to add the extra wifi places you want into this file. In doing so you gain extra "hotspots" that only your 3ds knows how to connect to. Problem is, I don't know if anyone has tried to add any wifi to it. But supposedly the file can contain 100 hotspots, and only around 50 or so are actually used.

    If you want more info on hotspot.conf, take a look at: https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Nintendo_Zone
