I would use a netmask of 255.255.255.0 and no default gateway. The
default gateway (or default route) should be on the interface that
connects to the Internet. This configuration may interfere with you
Internet connection.

As far as changes, I suspect that the Windows machine was providing
the DHCP server, and an update turned it off. (Internet connection
sharing, I think.) A DHCP server on the Linux machine would not
provide an IP address for eth1.
