Fixing Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) DHCP not Working

Problem

ICS on Windows XP has been enabled, however some Ethernet devices disable and cable plugging in and out has cause the ICS DHCP function is not working properly and no IP is able to assigned to the connected machines.

Solution

After searching on the Internet, I found executing the following command on the ICS enabled PC would fix the problem:

netsh winsock reset

Do remember to restart the ICS enabled PC afterwards!
