Community member DreamcastTM has been focusing more research on PC-DC servers lately, and discovered multiple revisions of the Dreamcast 56k modem. For years we assumed the need for a line voltage simulator depended on what PC modem you were using to interface with the Dreamcast. We now learn that this is not the case, and it depends on what revision Dreamcast modem you own.
For North American Dreamcast Modems, the revision 670-14140B modem requires a line voltage simulator, where-as the 670-14140A does not require one at all.
To determine what revision your modem is, look on the CAUTION sticker located on the silver inner side of the modem:
Note that both Rev B and A modems for some reason have 670-14140A on a smaller sticker located on the bottom edge of the case.
As of this writing PAL or JPN modems have not been tested yet.
