Default Mac g5 and xbox 360 help

My Mac g5 has a wireless card, and get internet through that, it also has a Ethernet port. I'm trying to figure out how I can send a "internet signal" out of that ethernet port so I can run the wire into my 360, and play online. My wireless router is downstairs, and I can't run a wire all the way upstairs, nor do I feel like going to buy a wireless adapter for the 360..Anyway I can do this, thanks!

You would have to set up your Mac as an Internet Shared system. I know how to do it in Windows, but on a Mac, you're pretty much SOL unless someone else here has done it.

You can't just connect them directly without first setting up the Mac to act as the bridge.
