Here is a screen grab of description of the service.  You probably already have this but I'm just throwing it in in case you haven't seen it.

and here is a pretty good description of the service...
http://www.windows-xp-services.com/windows-services-network-connections.html

although it may have grown since this older article.

Used for all your network connection stuff, as described in article, and it's critical for that, and if not running, then you won't get on a network.  You should have it running all the time, unless you decide you never want a particular computer to be on a network.

Hope that helps.
