I am getting the same error: 005-4040, when I try to visit the eshop on my 3ds.
It has been like this for almost 24 hours now.

Finally I found someone with the same issues that I have. I had this two days ago and I still have it now.

Only a few people having this problem then? No one else?

Yeah I'm getting this error (005-4040) too.
I can access the internet through the browser and in games, but can't access the eShop, check for system updates or do a system transfer.
I'm also in Australia, but I have friends that can access it without any problem.

Any suggestions?

So some people are able to access the eshop within Australia while others can not? Strange.
I can also access the internet on my 3DS, but I can not update the system or open the eshop.
Error code 005-4040 still occurs.

Wow, still no luck after 3 days. I might have to ring Nintendo to find out what on earth is going on...
