When you say "online", do you mean to use its web browser or to play multiplayer games?

-You'll need a phone line.
-If browsing the web is all you plan to do, you might be able to get away with a digital phone line, but an analog line is preferable. You'll need a copy of the PlanetWeb browser (preferably 3.0, but you can use an older one if you wish) and a compatible dial-up Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PlanetWeb browser is pretty old and there's no way to update its compatibility (short of writing a new browser), so it won't work with many of today's ISPs.
-If you want to play multiplayer games, you'll definitely need an analog phone line. A digital line just won't work. You'll also need one or more of the five NetLink-compatible Saturn games.
I have my Saturns, I have some of my games, I have a RasPi. Gotta put all this stuff together!

the internet browser should still be compatible with AT&T and Earthlink.

On top of what Warp said you'll need to either be able to make long distance calls or find someone here that can dial out. I've played against Manji and Derek but they both had to dial me. As I'm a broke bastard. :D
