Streetpass Relays solved EVERYRHING! - Turn your router or hotspot into a Relay!

I used to get maybe 4 tags a week. When the relays rolled out I was excited, but to-date I've gotten 2 tags from 5 locations - bummer! Then this happens:

Now I get as many streetpass tags in a day as I want!

Following these directions, you can turn your router or android hotspot into a streetpass relay station of your own.

By changing the MAC address to one of the many on the source's link, you can streetpass players instantly from home (or on the go if your using your phone and wifi tether like me). Change addresses and BAM! another tag!

Just be carefully and give it about 30 minutes between addresses so you don't flood the relays with your Mii. And remember to have all your streetpass data optimized for each game you have active!

This is basically the same as when you fool your 3ds into thinking your router/hotspot is a nintendo zone but with a few more steps. THANKS NINTENDO/INTERNET ALTRUISTS!!

ONE MORE TIP: there is an 8-hour cool down for each specific MAC address you use, just like normal.

It's like reading rocket science.

1. iphone doesn't even have a way to be used for this yet. Only Android phones (and even then, not all).
2. If Nintendo wants to fix this they have to remove the relay feature entirely.

It also doesn't mention the Windows method that doesn't require dual wireless connection. You can do just fine with 1 wifi card/adapter or an ethernet cable + wifi card/adapter.

Sorry guys! I should have just posted this link instead:

http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-have-a-homemade-streetpass-relay.352645/

This guide is easier to follow and covers many devices and set ups for routers, pc, macs and androids. Sorry iphone users!

Anyone who really thinks Nintendo's going to "patch" this is a stupid and delusional fanboy.

Chrono Trigger is overrated as s***, it's a FF rip off and FF isn't even good. - SMBfan13

Think Nintendo should have just introduced a daily spot pass to begin with. Once a day you character can get uploaded to Nintendo's servers and download another character.

Nothing wrong with a 40 year old man watching anime intended for 5 year old Japanese girls.
