I know what SpotPass is, but how do I receive updates from it? I looked on every guide, but I don't know how to PHYSICALLY set it up.(Yes, I know I have to put it in Sleep Mode) Do I have to put it next to my computer or internet router, or do I have to plug it in?

You should setup your 3DS first.
Enter into the Setup Panel, click the internet setting at the top left corner. Then follow the instruction of the setup, find the wifi around and input the password if necessary.
After that, when you open the 3DS, you can find the internet sybol at the top left corner. Then you close the screen and turn into the sleep mode. 3DS will download and update automatically.

Okay, did that, but how do I get updates? Do I go to a website while my 3DS is next to my router or something?
