Certain wireless configurations are incompatible with Nintendo Systems.

The Nintendo Systems can only connect to Wi-Fi on the 2.4GHz band, 5GHz Wi-Fi is not compatible.
Some configurations may require manual assignment of DNS and IP Address settings.

Either use Google Public DNS servers, or your ISP's DNS servers if you know them.

Google Public DNS:
Primary: 8.8.8.8
Secondary: 8.8.4.4

Some configurations require entry of proxy information, this is usually the case for schools and businesses.
Please note that some school and business proxies may block any attempted connection to unapproved URLs/IP addresses possibly stopping the 3DS from contacting Nintendo's servers.

:) ... no, I just know a lot about this stuff.

Also, minor correction, I should have said "and/or" in this sentence:

...as depending on the situation, only one may need manual configuration. I hope I helped.
