Playing Quake III Arena for SEGA Dreamcast with your Broadband Adapter

Quake III Arena for SEGA Dreamcast supports the Dreamcast Broadband Adapter. In order to play Quake III Arena with your Dreamcast Broadband Adapter, you must have access to a highspeed network or Internet Service Provider (ISP) that uses either Static IP, DHCP, or PPP over Ethernet (PPPOE). Please check with your Service Provider if you are unsure if one of these protocols is supported or, if you also have a PC and are using it for this same ISP, check the connection settings on your PC.

If your PC is connected to the same high speed network that you would like to connect the Dreamcast to, follow these steps to get the information you need from your PC. Windows 95/98/ME users can get information about their high speed network settings by:

Dynamically Allocated IP Address

(Using DHCP)

To connect to an ISP that uses DHCP, follow these steps:

1)Select the Internet Game option from the Mode Select Screen.

2)Leave your username and password blank.

3)Make sure the IP Address, Gateway, Primary DNS, and Secondary DNS are all marked with “0.0.0.0”.

4)Select “Next” to connect online.

If you have trouble finding available game servers online, we recommend that you press the X Button to rescan for servers, wait until the “No Response from Master Server” message appears, and then try again.

Peer-to-Peer Protocol over Ethernet (PPPOE)

To connect to an ISP that uses PPPOE, follow these steps:

1)Select the Internet Game option from the Mode Select Screen.

2)Enter your username for your ISP in the User Name Field.

3)Enter your password for your ISP in the Password Field.

4)Make sure the IP Address, Gateway, Primary DNS, and Secondary DNS are all marked with “0.0.0.0”.

5)Select “Next” to connect online.

Static IP

To connect to an ISP that uses Static IP, follow these steps:

1)Select the Internet Game option from the Mode Select Screen.

2)Enter your username for your ISP in the User Name Field.

3)Enter your password for your ISP in the Password Field.

6)Enter the IP Address of the Router on your network in the Gateway field.

8)Enter the IP Address of the Backup DNS.

Windows 2000 users can get information about their high speed network settings by:

1)Go to the Start Menu and choose Run.

2)Type “cmd” and select OK.

3)When the Command Prompt window appears, type “ipconfig /all” at the command line. Make sure you type the

Forward Slash ‘/’ instead of the Backslash character ‘\’.

Your network’s Subnet Mask and Gateway information will appear (Windows 2000 users will see additional network information). Some Static IP network configurations will allow you to disconnect your PC so that you can use the same IP address for your Dreamcast.

Additional Network Information from your PC

1)Right mouse click on the Network Neighborhood icon on your Desktop and select Properties.

2)In the Network Properties Window, highlight TCP/IP and select the Properties Button

3)In the IP Address section, if it says “Specify an IP Address”, your ISP is using Static IP; if the “Obtain an IP Address Automatically” option is selected, you will want to try to logon with either DHCP or PPPOE.

4)Select the DNS Configuration Tab. If “Enable DNS” is selected, write down the IP Addresses of the DNS Servers that are listed in the DNS Server Search Order section; otherwise, contact your ISP for the IP Address of a valid Primary Domain Name Server (DNS) and, if available, the IP Address of a Secondary DNS (not required).
