As far as changes, I suspect that the Windows machine was providing

I would expect the opposite, turning on internet connection sharing
tends to also turn the box into a DHCP server.  At least that was my
experience in the past.

It does, but an update can turn off Internet connection sharing. (I
was not sure of the name.) You never know what a Windows update will
do. I have even seen machines running 2 firewall programs because an
update urned on the Windows firewall, even though they already had
one running. It messed up printing to a network printer. I have even
seen DHCP blocked by installing a new firewall.

I now have the problem in which using "service network restart" disconnects me from the net.

my /var/log/messages after a reboot
