Exclamation Troubleshoot Browser and Miiverse

Hi guys!
I have a New 3DS XL with the update 10.7.0, lately the web browser and miiverse are giving me problems. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, when they don't what happens is you press open and a white screen with the name Web Browser/Miiverse appears right? But it stays there, like the WiFi led is still blinking but the screen is frozen, so I have to hard reset.

When they work (getting past that loading screen) sometimes they work normally, but sometimes the app kicks me with an error message saying "An error has occurred, close everything and restart" with no error code, but it just leaves me on the home menu.

So I have seen guys on other threads (same problem but update 9.3.0 waaay before now) with the 3DS that has a button to turn off wifi and apparently that unfreezes the screen, but because the new one has that button on the software i cant reach it.
Is this a software problem that will probably be fixed on the next update? (not probably if i am the only one) Or is this a hardware issue? (i hope not because i've run out of warranty)

PS i normally wouldn't care as miiverse and browser are not something i would die to use, but i'm afraid if this will expand to affect my games somehow.
