IPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange) is a kind of networking protocol that is connectionless, in other words a connection does not have to be maintained. It is based on Novells NetWare and is used to connect networks. As it is connectionless if a connection is broken it will just carry on from when the connection was broken. Another advantage of this is that it will only be in use when you connect to a network so system resources are not taken up needlessly.
