The following will download and install the Oneiric version of indicator-cpufreq, and a dependency it has, namely the libcpufreq0 package.

sudo dpkg -i libcpufreq0_007-1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i indicator-cpufreq_0.1.4-0ubuntu1~oneiric1_all.deb

If you are unable to access the internet at all from your workstation, you may simply download the two files on an another computer that does have internet access, and transfer the two debfiles over using a USB key or some other medium.

You can install deb files by double-clicking on them in Ubuntu.
