I think i know what you are asking - your mate is connecting his xbox to the back of his pc and trying to connect to xbox live?? The xbox will need its own connection e.g. a belkin f5d7330 (other makes are available)

I would presume that you have a Cross-over Ethernet cable to enable the Xbox to share your computer's internet connection (ICS - Internet Connection Sharing).
Did someone else do the ICS configuration on your computer for you, as well as select the cross-over rather then standard Ethernet cable?

i enabled the ICS on my computer and done it on his he has a normal ehtehrnet cable but mine works with both normal ethernet and crossover could it be his ethernet port or sunkin like it doesnt accept normal ethernet cables lol
