This is incredibly broad: you could use an Arduino Ethernet, which has built in Ethernet, or you could use an ENC28J60 Ethernet module, or any of the many, many WiFi peripherals.

Also, consider using the ESP8266, instead of an Arduino with an Ethernet/WiFi peripheral. The ESP8266 can be programmed directly from the Arduino IDE with Arduino-style syntax, and can also run the NodeMCU firmware (programmed in Lua).
