Try restarting the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service. You can access the Services console via either:
a) Control Panel > Administrative Tools (which is under Performance and Maintenance if you are viewing the CP in Category View) > Services
or the easier and faster way...
b) Typing "services.msc" (minus the quotes, of course) into a Run line.
