I was really excited until I read that part.
Are there any homebrew games that have modem network support?
The problem with doing modem stuff on the Dreamcast is that KallistiOS doesn't have a working PPP stack. For some unknown reason, the one in lwIP doesn't work at all, and I never got the time/patience to finishing writing a replacement for it (and I don't believe anyone else has worked on KOS' network code in a long while, other than me). I have a partial replacement that works with KOS' built-in network UDP/IP stack (which I also wrote), but sadly no way to test it with a real ISP. That, and I haven't touched the code in many years, so I doubt it even works anymore...
It was one of those little side projects that I worked on, but never finished to a point of it being useful or releasable. Heck, this is the first time I've actually publicly acknowledged even having anything partially working with regard to PPP, I think.
