When you want to use a dll, you need to link the .lib file.

There should be sfml-network.dll and sfml-network.lib.
Link to sfml-network.lib.

You must link to sfml-main.

You don't see the console because you created a GUI application (which is the reason why you need a WinMain entry point instead of a main).

You must change your project to be a console application.
