    Great question,

    Most laptops don't have PCMCIA slots anymore, so your best bet would likely be a 1784-U2CN USB to ControlNet cable, however most people use Ethernet on their laptops to go through a ControlLogix Gateway - a 1756 chassis and power supply with an Ethernet and ControlNet card installed,
