Yeah I looked online it said the Lenovo RD02-D400 ones should work, but they had said on Dreamcast Live there was a way to tell by looking at a picture and comparing the internals, but the picture wasn't in the F.A.Q.
Here is the excerpt from the F.A.Q.
The recommended modem is the Dell NW147. This same modem is also sold as the Lenovo RD02-D400. They both use the Conexant RD02-D400 chipset. It's not recommended to purchase an unbranded modem even though they look very similar. Many are not compatible and it's impossible to tell them apart.
From the eBay page I bought mine from it appears to be an official Lenovo Conexant RD02-D400 chipset according to the official looking tag connected to it as opposed to a unbranded clone.
It also has the year 2007 printed on the tag on it in multiple places as well as stamped, so it seems it is possible it could be an original one that was made back in the day vs a new clone? Seems like too much work for a clone.

Yes and no, like I said it is gong inside my Dreamcast case, this is going to be an internal DreamPi mod fully Wifi.
Bob Dobbs wrote:5. Do you have a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable/adapter (not required, but excellent to monitor the Pi when troubleshooting)?
Yes I have a brand new one still in the package here from a old Graphics Card I got for my PC years ago.
Bob Dobbs wrote:6. I assume you have the SD-Card.
Yes I have a small 4gb one here already, as well as a USB hub if I need to use it which seems likely.
I saw mods where the PSU from the Dreamcast provides enough power to run the Pi and everything on top of the normal components. I have a GDEMU so will be interesting to see how much it taxes the power draw.
My plan is to build something like this fully internal. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10407
