Hi, I am tryin to get online with my xbox, via my macbook, ethernetcable, and share the wireless connection in the macbook. It doesn´t work. But the mac can share the internet connection with another mac.
Any suggestions ? ?

here's how you do it:
connect the mac to the internet via airport. the go to system preferences --> sharing --> internet --> and share your connection from AirPort to Built-In Ethernet.
go to your xbox and set the IP to 192.168.2.2, and use 192.168.2.1 as your router/gateway. 192.168.2.1 is your airport connection.
go to your terminal and type "dig" without quotes. find the line where it says SERVER. it should be the third line from the bottom. that's your DNS1 server. enter that IP Address into your xbox as the DNS server1. leave DNS2 blank.
now you should be able to connect to the internet through the mac. if it doesn't work try stopping the mac's built-in firewall.
