ICS with Fixed IP Addresses
Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) with Fixed IP Addresses
You can assign fixed IP addresses to the clients. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) will still work. Set the subnet masks to 255.255.255.0 and standard gateway and DNS addresses to automatic (or to 192.168.0.1, as the ICS server acts as a DNS proxy).
However, by doing that, you introduce a new problem. Assume you connect a travelling laptop to your network, and your other clients are switched off. The ICS server will then assign an IP address to the laptop, which will, with some probability, coincide with one of the clients' IP addresses.
When you then switch on the client, you'll get an IP address conflict.
