Lightbulb One LAST possible good use for the Dreamcast

sponsored links

 
OK, now that the Dreamcast is pretty much dead, I was thinking of using it as a internet/e-mail terminal in my home. I already have the mouse & keyboard. I also have broadband internet access on my main computer & plan on setting up a home network. So, I was wondering if the Dreamcast can be connected to a home network relatively easily with the broadband adpater? Any info would be great. Thanks

if you have a broadband adapter, surfing with the DC is fine! The problem is you cant do much with it other than that. ALso i find it a pain in the arse to try and use a mouse and keyboard while sitting on the couch....

Stick with the PC for internet and email, DC is fine for gaming.
