The Dreamcast needs to be configured with your ISP information to sign onto the internet. Once entered it will be saved to the Dreamcast's internal memory.

You can use any of the following to configure your dialup ISP settings:
DreamPassport (Japan)
Dreamkey 3.0 (Europe)
PlanetWeb Browser ver 1.x/2.x/3.0 (North America)
XDP Browser Pack
4x4 Evolution (NTSC-U/C)
POD Speedzone (NTSC-U/C)
Quake 3 Arena (NTSC-U/C)
Unreal Tournament (NTSC-U/C)
The Dreamcast has multiple ISP fields, 2 for PlanetWeb, and multiple others for Dreampassport, and Broadband settings as well. Different games / browsers have the capabilities to alter different ISP settings. Be aware of this when configuring your Dreamcast, especially when configuring 4x4 Evolution.

If you have entered your ISP information correctly you should be able to get online without any problems.
