How do you check if streetpass is working fine?

You need to have wifi on for it to work, you will see the street pass logo where internet should be on the screen too.
Then just close the device and wait.

I'd like to know something like this too. Does streetpass stop for any reason? I used to streetpass some kids every day but it just kinda stopped after a while, same with GameStop units.

Well, you do need to have your system on standby/sleep mode for it to work. It is touchy and I noted it works better when you are on the home screen rather than playing a game or a system app. Wifi needs to be on as well. Sometimes, other people I tag on a regular basis just don't bring their 3ds or they turn off their wifi by accident. (I do that a lot really)

But don't you have to just close your 3DS for that to happen?

Take a look at the 3DS Wiki on here for a way to force streetpass on.

Yep, that is what sleep/standby mode is... where you close your 3ds system.
While using the system, you will get an indicator in the upper left of the top screen stating if spot pass is on or not. It will only work when you place your system into sleep/standby (closing it while on).

(Also, check to make sure you have spotpass activated for the apps you use).

StreetPass works with the 3DS open, depending on what's running. If it's at the home screen, it will work. Proof of this is the GameStop 3DS systems.

Remember to turn StreetPass on for the software that you want to StreetPass with.
