Some laptops can take plug-in cards that offer Ethernet or RS-232C:
U.S. Robotics/Dell Model XJ4338 is a 33.6 baud modem.
Dell Ethernet Card 10BASE-T/100Base-2
D-Link DFE-670TXD 10/100 Base-T
I've not used them myself; my laptop came equipped with Ethernet and
RS232-C. If I ever buy another laptop, I will be sure that it has both
Ethernet and RS232-C interfaces.
