    But I'm not sure about XP;en-us;314066

    Although this line

    You cannot modify the default network configuration after you enable Internet Connection Sharing. This includes changing the range of private IP addresses that are handed out (DHCP allocator), enabling DNS, disabling DNS, and configuring a range of public IP addresses.
    makes me wonder if somehow you can do it before setting up ICS.

    I'll keep looking.

    You may to look in to a router, that way you can change the range and the extra benefit of a firewall.

    The only way to do that is with a server product and not using ICS, using Routing and Remote Access instead. That way you can give the clients and address range via DHCP and route those elsewhere.
