I think my system is broken.

And if it is, I'm never buying another Nintendo product again. Basically, I can't connect online at all anymore, no matter where I go to do so.

Since I use a wired connection at home, I rely on external sources to connect wireless devices online. Thus, I went to Starbucks to use their Wi-fi, hoping to pick up my ten NES games. I searched for the access point, which was found very quickly - the connection quality was a solid three bars. When I began the connection test, the system started to connect online, and gave me an error code before it would register, claiming that the connection test had failed. Due to Starbucks being busy, I headed over to McDonald's, thinking that the failed connection test was a result of high traffic. Much to my chagrin, I got the same generic error code. I then went to Burger King, disappointed that my previous attempts had failed, and their connection wouldn't work either. It had worked before, so why the sudden change?

You do know that most of those public wi-fi require you to accept a ToU. Which the 3DS doesn't naturally do if you go to System settings, right?

Elaborate please. Why would Burger King's internet connection work before, but not now?

Hell, it wasn't even the connection itself; I could clearly see the access point, and the guy sitting behind me was connected online via his laptop.

you have to go to the internet at that point and you have to agree to the terms and service for each restaurant then you can use it

Because when he opens his browser it opens to where you accept the Terms and Conditions before connecting to the internet.

How can I accept a Terms of Use agreement when I haven't been given one?

Just open up the Internet browser, try to access something, and accept the terms. Then press the Close button (DO NOT press Home) and then try the eShop.
