Internet Connection Sharing has been disabled by the Network Administrator – Windows 10

To manually workaround this issue you need to jump into the registry to enable ICS.
This is usually deployed via Group Policy on a domain network.

As usual, be careful editing the registry.

The Workaround

  1. Start > Run > gpedit.msc
  2. Locate;
    • Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Network/Network Connections
  3. Disable the following policies;
    • Prohibit installation and configuration of Network Bridge on your DNS domain network
    • Prohibit use of Internet Connection Firewall on your DNS domain network
    • Prohibit use of Internet Connection Sharing on your DNS domain network
    • Require domain users to elevate when setting a network’s location
  4. Start > Run > regedit
  5. Locate;
    • Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Network Connections
  6. Add/update a registry DWORD entry for the following, and set it to 1;
    • NC_PersonalFirewallConfig
    • NC_ShowSharedAccessUI
