As mentioned earlier, you can go a bit more wired:
Even simple broadband routers like Edimax 3G-6200N
(30 Euro?) today allow you to plug in UMTS / 3G /
HSDPA / CDMA USB modem sticks, so they connect to
the outside world through either the stick or DSL
and connect to your computer through normal network
cable (LAN / RJ45) or WLAN / WiFi (IEEE 802.11 with
various variants). Of course this means you may need
cable between the router and your DOS computer, but
at least it allows you to get DOS online via UMTS,
even if neither UMTS nor WLAN drivers are available.
If you are lucky and have WLAN drivers but no UMTS
drivers for DOS, you do not even need the cable :-)

In other words, a DOS port of the small but
modern browser Dillo :-)

Both are probably much better than classic Arachne,
although the latter might be nice on 486ish PC if
you install it on ramdisk to make speed acceptable.
