[Coco] Laptop Conversion for Coco

I'm looking for some advice from the hardware experts here.
I have two old IBM 360CSE laptops with decent hard drives, one running
Win 3.1 and the other running Win95, and both having floppy access only
- no CD drives. I want to be able to make at least one of these into a
Coco emulator to take on the road with me. Right now neither can access
the internet - no modem nor network card.
As a first step in the conversion to an emulated Coco, I'd like to have
internet connectivity so I can download emulator files. Is there a
network card made for these old laptops? I'm sure there has to be a
modem available for slow speed access. Where would I look (eBay?), and
what do I look for? I'd prefer a broadband connection via network card,
but will settle for a modem if that is the only available option. I do
have a fairly bulky interface kit to connect optional equipment to these
laptops, but an internal network card or modem would be preferred.
Mark, can Cloud 9 get any of these parts, or do this conversion for me?
Thanks everyone for the help!
