    You'll need a crossover cable, then use internet connection sharing

    possibly
    set up network connection sharing

    yeh that cable will work.

    open network connections (in the control panel)
    right click on the network connection that your internet is connected through, select properties, go to the advanced tab, tick the box allowing others to connect to the internet using that connection, select your lan port, deselect the box allowing others to control the connection.
    Apply
    Done.

    Make it look like this

    I think you'll struggle playing games on XBL with openzone, I can't remember for sure but I think the upload speed is pretty poor (especially if its an openzone from someones hub).
