Plenty of major ISP providers can be accessed with plain vanilla
PPP. I know Earthlink can. I used to use it to connect my
Handspring Visor to the net a few years back (with a plain old
modem.) Any ISP that lets people dial up with the freenixes
(Linux, NetBSD, etc.) can be used. Most small local providers
work fine, too.

Can't one just connect it through ethernet? (I don't know much
about the Dreamcast)
