A strange Mobile Hotspot issue after the last KB update

Microsoft periodically releases updates to their Windows Operating System, in order to patch (fix) any bugs or security flaws that have been detected. After latest Windows patch upgrade to KB5014697 (for Windows 11) & KB5014699 (for Windows 10) , users are not able to use internet on Windows machine after sharing Ethernet over Wi-Fi from Network sharing option or vice-versa. For example, after open the Mobile hotspot and connect to this network with your mobile phone, your Laptop/Pc internet will be cut off instantly.
