I can't get my 3DS to connect to the internet/wfi

I'm not at home right now, but I've tried to get my 3DS to connect to a bunch of open connections or hotspots(such a mcdonalds, starbucks) but it just won't connect. It see's them, but I can't get on.

Can someone help me?

I've always had a problem too. It never worked despite being the right type of wifi and unlocked. I always got an error message about an encryption key. Even the AT-T wifi spots that Nintendo advertised as being able to be used with the 3DS don't work.
I can't wait for Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Paper Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby Wii, and Skyward Sword!

Did you ask them for a key?

Perhaps they're not and does require a sign-in. Because I connect just fine at McDonalds.
