Default Can't connect on 3DS?

Hi guys! So I have a 3DS that used to connect to my wifi just fine... but lately I can't get it to at all. I get the 003-1102 error (sometimes it's 003-1101, etc.) but they all appear to be the same issue on the Nintendo Support Error Code page. However, NOTHING I do helps. I've had a tech out here to switch out my router out, I've tried the DNS code, I've tried cycling the box... nothing. The DS LOOKS to have good internet up in the top left corner with full bars, but the connection test always fails.

If anyone could help me out with this, I would greatly appreciate it! I'd love to get this working again.

I had the exact same issue. I bought my original 3DS XL back in Feb. Worked fine till about 2 weeks ago. I did all I could including the troubleshoot walkthrough on nintendos page. Nothing worked. I ended up taking my system back to gamestop and had it replaced. Thank goodness I had the warranty, otherwise I'd be pretty upset.

Oh dear... I got mine used at Gamestop about a year ago so I don't have a warranty. Ugh. I wonder what happens to suddenly make it stop working. It's not been dropped or anything like that.

Maybe you have to change the Wifi antenna of the Wifi Board.
