As I oft do, I stand before as a man with a question - who's answer, I'm pretty sure I already know. Because if what I asked were possible, it surely would have been done long ago.
Thank you for reading this.
Does anyone have an information on the make-up of the Dreamcast's BroadBand Adapter? That is to say, exactly what is in the shell?
Is it more than, say, a modified PC NIC? If not, is it based off of some chipset that can be purchased elsewhere? And if so, is the driver information flashed inside the BBA itself or the Dreamcast? Hell...while we're at it, can the Windows CE inside of the Dreamcast be made to see a standard NIC, so even if it can't be used for games, it can still be used as a webserver or something?
So, in a nut's shell, what prevents the world from building a Dreamcast BBA?
Or should I just start saving my pennies for the $200 I'll drop on eBay?
