Sharing WIFI to ethernet - problems

I'm trying to share my internet connection from my Macbook to my PS3/Xbox, but for the life of me I can't get it to work. My wifi connection is from my university - I'm living in a dorm, so I have no access to the router or anything.

I've tried a million different settings, and I've Googled and Googled so I'm not a newb.

I go to Preferences / Sharing, and do the sharing thing - wifi to ethernet.

I've tried using DCHP, DCHP with manual address, manual - nothing.

The settings I have at the moment are:

Mac:

DCHP with manual address

10.0.0.10

and on my PS3:

IP: 10.0.0.20
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 10.0.0.10
DNS1: 8.8.8.8
DNS2; 8.8.4.4

i keep getting DNS errors. I've tired using different DNS' - OpenDNS, the Mac's IP address - but nothing.

I can't figure it out. I've tried everything I can find.

Has anyone got any help at all? I'll be eternally grateful.
