Cant get my dreamcast online via dreampi

Post#1 » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:14 pm

Hey, I was just trying to go online with my raspberry but it just doesn't work... I read a few threads online but I still cant find the cause. :(

[ Play Quicktime file ] VID_20171222_210615.mp4 [ 1.9 MiB | Viewed 625 times ]


Here is a video with the raspberry status (sorry its a video because all my pictures taken were above 2MB) Is it something caused by the voltage inducer or is my dreamcast modem dead? I am using a pal model A modem and am running dreampi 1.6.

I hope you guys can help me out :)

From the video you can see that it detects the modem and is
waiting for the DC to call. So the video doesn't show any issues.

1. Do you have two lights on the modem?
2. You built a LVI that has 18V right?
3. What happens when you try to dial?

Yes, I do have two lights on the modem and my voltage inducer has 18V, tested it with a multimeter...
The dreampi doesnt show any updates when I try to dial with my dreamcast and my dreamcast says that there is something wrong with my connection to the isp and that I should check if a cable is attached to the modem. :(

Have you configured the isp profile through for example XDP?

I used dreamkey 3.0, what else do I have to configure besides setting the dial number to 555? I am resoldering my inducer right now maybe there went something wrong
