Download All .debs in build-essential

I need to build iwlwifi after I made an edit to the module in 
backports.  The laptop I need to build this on is freshly installed with 
no internet connection.  In order to build the module, which I had on a 
USB drive, I need to install the build-essential package.

What is the best way for me to get a list and download of all the .debs 
that make up build-essential and its dependencies?

My plan is to download the debs, put them on a USB drive, install them 
on the laptop, and continue building iwlwifi so I can have internet on 
this laptop.

Or, if there's a better way, please let me know.  A USB network adapter 
would be ideal, but I forgot it at home, ;(.
