what modem/switch/router do you use to connect to your internet connection?

do you have ISP provided cable/ADSL then a box attached to that...

how does your computer then attach to that box? Wireless? network cable? or USB?

what have you connected your 360 to?

The easiest way is to get a router to share the interent connection.

So it will look like this:
Your Modem from your ISP (assuming you have high speed internet) gets connected to the router,s internet port. The the router gets connected to the PC and to the XBOX.

You may have to contact your ISP to properly setup your router so that it can connect to the interent through your Modem.
