Rt. Click on Network Places | Properties
Rt. Click on Local Area Connectio | Properties | Install | Protocol | The only one that mentions IPX

Control Panel => network connections. Right click your connection & select properties. Click install, protocol, add, NWLink IPX/SPX NetBIOS compatible transport, OK, close.
Thats how.

I thought a relatively old StarCraft patch added TCP/IP compatability for networking?

It does.

Update to the latest patch and select the Local Area Network (UDP)
