You can share the computer's Internet connection using (unsurprisingly) Internet Connection Sharing. But that probably won't work in your case since the computer isn't directly connected (passing NAT through NAT).

Before getting too deep into this, can you explain why you don't want to connect wirelessly?

sadly, it doesn't help that your NAT is "open".

If you connect the Xbox wirelessly, the computer doesn't require a wireless adapter. The Xbox would connect directly to your wireless router. The Xbox needs one, of course, but not the PC.

"im 15 and i have to ask my mum for money"

Get a job? :p

I don't see what the difficulty is here.

There are xbox how tos that outline using two nics in a host pc to connect a xbox thru the pc to the internet.

Only trick is remembering that ICS wants 192.168.0.x on the lan side of the host machine [part that connects to xbox]

You traverse multiple nat routers on your way to and from a web site. nat thru nat is not a issue.
