Sega Dreamcast Internet Setup


1. Set up your Dreamcast according to the Owner's Manual.
    Make sure your Dreamcast is plugged directly into a phone jack (do not use any type of splitter).

2. Insert the Dreamcast Web Browser. You can use any version of the Dreamcast Web Browser to change ISP information. If you do not have a Dreamcast Web Browser, please contact Sega for a replacement.

3. Press the POWER button to turn on your Dreamcast. You should see the Dreamcast Intro and Sega License screens, followed by the Planet Web splash screen. If not enough free memory blocks are available in your VMU, or if you don't have a VMU installed, you'll see the following screen:

  There are not enough free memory blocks. 3 empty blocks are required for saving.
  If the Web Browser is started, saving will not be possible.

Select OK to advance past this screen.

4. Press the START button on your controller.

5. Choose Options from the menu cluster.
