Actually, the link you gave specifically says that WfW 3.11 shipped 
without TCP/IP support:

"Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (originally codenamed Snowball) was released 
on 11 August 1993,[4] and shipped in November 1993.[5] It supported 
32-bit file access, full 32-bit network redirectors, and the VCACHE.386 
file cache, shared between them. The standard execution mode of the 
Windows kernel was discontinued in Windows for Workgroups 3.11.

A Winsock package was required to support TCP/IP networking in Windows 
3.x. Usually third-party packages were used, but in August 1994 
Microsoft released an add-on package (codenamed Wolverine) that provided 
limited TCP/IP support in Windows for Workgroups 3.11."
