you should be able to download the .pkg file directly using Newt's Cape
(assuming the server provides one of several MIME types); other browsers
should work also; you might want to stash the result in Inbox initially
until you're done since I don't know if live installing a NIE module might
interfere with a connection. (it shouldn't, but...)

if you don't have individual .pkg files available online, another
possibility is to visit the site, assuming you've got a URL
for .zip file containing all NIE modules. the server unzips the URL for you
and gives you links to individual files. (I discovered this recently since
many Palm PDB book files are zipped).
