I had set my older 3DS for my nephew and then I took both my system and his system to the store. I had gotten streetpassed by someone on my system, but his system didn't get that streetpass. I'm not sure what age you can start streetpassing strangers, I had his 3DS set for a 5 year old.
To fix this problem, I just assigned the 3DS to my brother. It streetpasses just fine now, probably since we are both over 18 years old.
I'm not sure what age you set your system to, but perhaps this is the reason why you're not getting streetpassed by other systems. I don't think you can change the age assigned to the system without starting fresh, but you could just simply add the friendcode of the 3DS you are trying to streetpass.
Anyway, hope this helps you out!

Also, you don't always streetpass people. I didn't know there was some limit, but my girlfriend and I have been standing in the same place and sometimes I would get streetpasses and not her, and vice versa, and we're both 25.
One time for no reason, I couldn't streetpass her at all for an entire day. Not that I think it had anything to do with it, but I changed my shirt color and Mii Hat, since that resets your Mii sort of. Could also try using another Mii and seeing if that works, then switching back. Doesn't affect your Find Mii or anything.
Zanreo wrote:It apparently affects others' streetpass info about you though if you change the mii you use(well at least if you don't change back), since I streetpassed a friend after she had changed her Mii, as in switched to a whole newly made one (while having streetpassed her several times before) and when I got her Mii, from the same 3DS she's always had, it was a "new" one in level 1, and I had both this new Mii and her old mii in my streetpass plaza. So I guess my friends will just have to deal with my mii being reset then!

MoldyClay wrote:Yeah, this is just because you technically streetpass the Mii, and not the 3DS for some reason. So you could in theory help someone out and make a legion of Lv.7 Miis by streetpassing one to level it up and then switching and so on. I have a Tingle Mii that I've used during a Zelda event instead of my own Mii. My Mii was still Lv.7 for my girlfriend though after we had streetpassed a few times that day. Tingle is Lv.2 or 3 on there though.
So yeah, for a day or a single street pass, they'd have to deal with a Lv.1 Mii, but could have the other back if it fixes itself and you change back.
So yeah, test it out. Worst case scenario, nothing happens.

Usually I have found that turning the system off and on and sliding the wireless switch off and on should correct it. The times it happened to me I would get partial streetpasses, usually game data but no mii plaza.
