I just bought my 3DS a few days ago (the day after the US launch), and I want to connect to my Netgear router. I shouldn't have any problems, right? WRONG. Unfortunately, my wifi password has an equals sign in it. (=) I have searched the keyboard on the 3DS while trying to input the password several times, but there seems to be no "=" key, even when the shift key has been tapped. I haven't updated my system at all yet, so I don't know if this was fixed in an update. Is there a way to bypass this equals sign, or do I need to change my password? Or am I missing it entirely? Thanks for your time.
Click the symbol tab, then go to page 2/3. It's on the bottom row, 3rd button from the right.
edit: so I just checked and apparently it doesn't let you access the symbol tab when putting in your wep/wpa key... you might want to just change your password

I had the same issue today. Very frustrating. However, if your router has WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), you can set it up that way. Just select the button for Wi-Fi Protected Setup when setting up the internet on the DS. It has 2 arrows in a circle on the icon. If your router has it, there is a button on the router somewhere that you press while the DS is looking for a connection. No need to input a password. Worked great for me. Good luck!
