I would like to implement ICS on a small peer to peer office network. However, it uses static IP addresses in the
192.168.10.1 range. ICS seems to force me to use 192.168.0.1 together with non-static IP addresses. How can I use ICS without changing my office IP addresses? Unfortunately, you're out of luck as far as ICS is concerned. As you correctly noted, ICS will always use IP address 192.168.0.1 on the private interface of the machine you enable it to and you won't be able to change it.
However, all is not lost. There are plenty of third parties that will allow you to perform the same job without these restrictions. Simply visit www.download.com or www.tucows.com and do a search on "Internet Sharing" under the Windows operating system.
