When I see the welcome screen on the Nintendo Network ID Settings, I can't proceed because of this message.

"An internet connection is required to link a Nintendo Network ID. Make sure your connection settings are correct via internet settings in the system settings."

I did a connection test and everything was fine. I don't know why I can't create one. Help appreciated.

On the screen your trying sign in on, in the upper left hand corner of the upper 3ds screen you should have a box that says internet and that box should be blue. That means you are connected to the internet. If that box is gray or green then your not connected to the internet, even if that test said it connected ok.
If you are gray then some other device that uses your router may be kicking your 3ds off the router. If that is happening it might mean the 3ds and the other device are trying to use the same IP address to connect to the router.

Found out today that my laptop was probably the one kicking the 3DS off my internet router. Thanks for the advice.
