Following the Windows 7 guide on GBATemp.. is a wired connection necessary? :/

I think I'm cool.

Yes, if you're using your PC/Laptop with a wireless card. I'll give you a hand if you have anymore questions.

Thanks, I was also wondering rather than following the instructions provided, can't you just use mac address spoofing software+ open attwifi or no?

The instructions just make it easier for people that don't have a clue. It all boils down to changing your MAC address to that of an actual Nintendo Zone or an address other people are relaying and then sharing the connection under the SSID of attwifi.

The MAC address changer on GBAtemp cycles through either 16 or 100 MAC addresses confirmed to store streetpass data by Nintendo, so no.

If Obamacare is so amazing, how come nobody in Congress abides by it?

Oh yeah, shouldn't be anything against it in the TOS.

It is by no means it's intended use, but there are no ramifications that I can see.

Shadow_Mario, I have a question. I'm using the Window 7 method for this, and I'm pretty sure I have it set-up correctly. I let it run for a few hours a couple nights ago, but got NO street passes at all. Any advice?

Ok, I did everything but every time I try to "Start Virtual Router" is says "the group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation"?? -_-

You make sure that your laptop is connected to the internet correctly? Did you rename your wireless connection to "WiFi" so the MAC cycler can change the MAC address correctly?

You need to enable your virtual router. It should be under Network Connections as "Wireless Network Connection 2".
