Using Xbox Live Without Ethernet Cable through Use of a Mac

Hey everyone,

I'm working on setting up Xbox live through a macbook. I have a 2011 Mac Air, a 2008 MacBook, and a 2009 Mac Pro. None of these have ethernet slots on the sides... However, I do have a few ethernet cables if there's some way to use a port. Any ideas on how I can use Xbox Live without a ethernet cable, but still using a Mac?

Thanks,
busterroni

Are you sure the MacBook DOESN'T have it? It's next to your magsafe plug...

I have a USB drive next to my magsafe plug, then a headphone jack.

That's your Air though, your 2008 will have it, and most definitely on the back of the Mac Pro.
