Try 10,000 points for testing. Since you say that the error is zero no matter how many times you generated new 100 points, you may also want to check the seeding of the random number generator to make sure that each 100 points are really different from the previous set.

A zero out-of-sample error means that the target boundary was perfectly replicated, an illogical event when we train with only 100 points.
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
