    Is the mac running from Wireless internet?

    System Preferences > Sharing > Internet.

    Turn it on, and select the option to share to other devices using "Ethernet"

    I'm not sure why people try this stuff. Online gaming usually takes a lot, and it seems very inefficient to do it this way. I can't say for sure how it works because I never tried it.
