For the Sun go with a sbus-pcmcia adapter and use a pcmcia modem.

I haven't done so, but I've heard that this is a good way to do
this from people.

The sbus pcmcia adapters used to go for around $25 or so on ebay
(they may be less now ?), and pcmcia modems are pretty cheap on the
used market (and some people just have them hanging around).

If you have an external modem, I think I have an OpenRoute (bought
by NX Networks) GT60 around.  It should do what you want perfectly
fine (but will require the external modem).  I need to check to see
if I'd have the special cable as well.  This router can handle up to
a T1 via CSU/DSU.  Pretty nice little unit (IMHO).  If your interested
contact me off list.
