You can get a super expensive broadband adapter, get the latest dreamkey release and run it through a dial up connection (though you will pay fees) or you can hook it up through a modem in a computer which is already connected to the internet.

Most of the servers that ran the games are offline, but there are some private servers opened up which you can connect to. I am sure someone else can help you more than I can with this...

A lot of the games you can play on the PC anyway, Phantasy Star Blue Burst is a port of the DC games (I think, it's certainly similar).
