You can't just turn it on and magically connect to the internet. You must first connect to a wireless network. Go into settings and ensure that "Wireless Communications" is set to "On", then hit the over arrow, and on the next pack you will see "Internet". Click connection settings and enter the settings for your or a neighbors wireless network. Once that is done properly you are free to browse the net.

How do you get internet on the 3ds? plz reply :(


To get the internet on the 3DS, I'm not certain if you mean the connection or the ability to browse the web, so here's how to do both:

To connect to the internet in general on the 3DS, you're going to need to have a wireless connection. Usually this would come from a router purchased at your residence, but it is also possible to go to a public WiFi hotspot and connect using that as well if you either do not have a home internet connection or do not own a wireless router. In order to connect to the wireless network once you have one in range:

1. Start up the 3DS and select "System Settings" from the main menu
2. Go into "Internet Settings"
3. Select "New Connection"
4. Select "Manual Setup"
5. Select "Search for Access Point"
6. After your 3DS brings up a list of all available wireless networks, select yours from the list and enter your wireless password (if applicable).
7. Test the connection, and away you go!

If you were referring to browsing the web, however, normally you will just tap the globe icon on the main menu (in the upper right). If you get an error message talking about internet coming in a later update, you will need to update your system. Here's how:

1. Make sure you're connected to the internet (as described above) and go into System Settings.
2. Go to "Other Settings"
3. Select "System Update".

If you received a 3DS that was boxed prior to Nintendo's recent update, it will not have the internet browser pre-installed, and this should fix the issue.

How to put internet on nintendo 3DS


The 3DS basically, can already connect to the internet as long as you have connection to WiFi. But if you want to browse using your 3DS, Do these: System Settings > Other Settings > Tap on 4 > System Update > Enter your PIN code > Tap on OK when you have internet connection > I Accept > Plug AC adapter (Optional) > Wait.
After waiting, You'll get the Nintendo eShop and the Internet browser. Reminder: YouTube, Other media can't be played or downloaded, Facebook chat is not available.
