Hey guys, I heard this over on another forum and decided to share it here. I've done this and it works.You can actually trick your 3DS into thinking it is connecting to an AT&T wifi hotspot, which offers the Nintendo Zone service, hence giving you the Nintendo Zone in your house.
You need a wireless router to get this to work.
Step one: Log in to your router through whatever web browser you have installed. -usally http://192.168.1.1/
Step two: Change your SSID to "attwifi" (without the quotes) and disable the security then save your settings.
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit!
You now can access the Nintendo Zone in the comfort of your own home.
-The only downside to this is that eliminating the security makes your network more vulnerable to hackers, so do this at your own risk.

I should probably mention that this can be considered illegal.(Somebody tell me if I'm wrong)

It's not illegal to change your router's SSID.

@JarvanZhetik: i'm pretty sure this isn't illegal — the only changes being made are on a given user's router, which in and of itself has nothing to do with Nintendo or AT&T (attwifi, really?). However, it is dangerous in terms of having to completely disable your network security in order for it to work. If you're considering giving this a shot, it's at your own risk, so be careful!

It works for Europe? Zomg!
7. Posted: Fri 3rd Feb 2012 20:18 GMT
Apparently yes. I'm going to try it now though.

There is a dead silence in this forum while everyone goes to try it out for themselves.......

Doesn't GBAtemp promote piracy and hacking?
They really need to change their name, the GBA has been dead for years.

It does work, but as far as I can tell, there is nothing to do in it yet. It says Coming Soon. It also creates an icon for Nintendo Zone like, which stays on your home menu and can be moved like any other.

I know going to Mcdonalds, they are using "Wayport" and attwifi..
Has it been confirmed whether or not it works with security settings? It'd be funny to see it working only because of the SSID.

I can't believe it worked...I didn't even change my router settings, just used an Android Phone with Wi-Fi tethering... At least I know Nintendo Zones work for any 3DS (whether NA or EU or JP) in any location. I came to this conclusion after the Nintendo Zone viewer app appeared on my Home Menu, and Australia has no Nintendo Zones at all. Wow, just wow.

I can't do this. I have some people who mooch off from our router a couple houses away. We had to put a password.

Eh, I'm not gonna try this. I don't think it's worth getting my Wi-Fi potentially hacked. Besides, there's not much that I can only get from Nintendo Zone that I can't get from Nintendo Life. Except trivia. woohoo

Can you delete the Nintendo Zone icon? It was installed with the big system update last December, and I know I'll never use it.

Question, I have no problem getting onto the web browser/e-shop at home through my Wi-Fi and I have no problem getting onto Nintendo Zone at McDonalds etc. But I have a hard time connecting to the internet on other peoples open Wi-Fi's and I thought that it was supposed to be like a laptop where you could hook onto any open Wi-Fi. I even got into internet system settings to find open Wi-Fi connectiongs, but always get an error message. Am I doing the wrong thing or does the 3DS not have that capability?

Probably not; it appears to be as fully integrated into the system as the built-in software. If you don't want to look at it as much, I'd recommend moving it off to the far right of your system's Home menu. Other than that, I got nothing.

Not sure when but you will be able to watch full episodes of Pokemon as well through Nintendo Zone.
