I was poking around for building small tcp/ip devices, and discovered there are a few tcp/ip/ethernet components available that litereally aren't much bigger than the plug. combined with some very small fpga or other components, it might be possible to make a plug device that looks like a DSL-phone-adapter,
but which provides a small firewall for your laptop while travelling... keeping the beasties out when you plug in to a strange network.
Something like this?
