    Also since i have a wired connection what would be the easiest way to be able to create a wifi accesspoint so my 3ds can connect to the internet

    or just buy a $30-$40 router. once you setup a wireless access point, then it would be rolling.
    i'm glad that the 3DS supports my home network (a common type). my phone can tether, so my 3DS can access it's wifi/3G too!

    It supports 802.11 b and g
    A n router will work with it in b/g/n or g/n mode, but not in n-only mode.
    It's not accredited to support a, but it might.

    If you have a smartphone that is capable of tethering you could also use it to set up a mobile hotspot. That's what I'm doing for regular DS games (since I don't want to set my WLAN's security to WEP)

    well, N signal supporting devices are still not popular in the market, but it's getting there.
    but it depends on the type of b/g/n signal, the 3DS MAY support the wireless N and be able to connect to it, just not the N speeds (300mbps?)
