Dialer setup

When you start the Web Browser CD, the Dreamcast will give you the opportunity to set up your own ISP for Internet access. Click on the choice for setting up your own ISP.

(If you don't see the screen for configuring your Internet and e-mail connections, press the START button. A pattern of buttons will appear on the screen. Use the arrow cursor to choose the "OPTIONS" button on the bottom right, then press the (A) key.)

Select the "Internet Connection" icon and press the (A) button. The "Basic Info" form will pop up on the screen. Fill out the fields in this form using the keyboard on the screen.


  1. Enter your name in the "Your Real Name" field.


  2. Enter your username (or Login name) in the "User Login" field, and your password in the "Password" field.


  3. Enter the access number which is local for you.


  4. Enter DNS1 number in the "DNS1" field:  Enter your ISP's DNS2 number in the "DNS2" field:


  5. Press the "CLOSE" button on the lower right of the keyboard to remove the keyboard from the screen.

Next, click on "Dial Options" at the top of the "Basic Info" form. Enter your local area code, any special prefixes you need to dial when calling long distance (e.g. 1-area code), and what code you use to disable call waiting features or get outside lines, if necessary.

Next, click on the "Proxy Settings" at the top of the form. You don't need to program a proxy, so set the "Use Proxy" option to "no", and leave the other fields blank. Then click "OK" to exit the screen.

Press the "SAVE" button in the bottom right corner of the main setup form to save these settings.

Now you're ready to connect to the Internet!
