It contains the Microsoft Win32 Internet functions, which provide Win32-based applications with easy access to common Internet protocols. These functions abstract the Internet's Gopher, FTP (file transfer protocol), and HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) protocols into a high-level application programming interface (API) that is familiar to independent software vendors (ISVs) and software developers, and that provides a fast and straightforward path to making applications Internet-aware. The Win32 Internet functions are exported from Wininet.dll. It is in the ActiveX SDK downloadable at http://www.microsoft.com.

wininet.lib is the import library of wininet.dll. You need the .lib to compile and link your program. At run time, the program will call the .dll. I think you may find it at http://www.microsoft.com/msdn/sdk or something like this.
