In the case of some networks and some type of malware, you might need to
do more than this.  For example, if a compromised host continues to spew
out packets without a valid IP, this still eats link capacity.  If the
network is relatively flat, which is often is in wireless configurations,
you still have a problem to solve before normal access for everyone else
is restored.
