What happens is that you have an "outside" ip address for your router and then you use and "inside" ip address for you local network. When you directly connect to the router, it handles this as a direct connection. However, if you insert a linksys, netgear router device in between you and the isp modem/router then you are using NAT. If you were using a dedicated internal router (linksys/cisco, netgear for example) then this would be transparent. You would also have some granular control over router functions.
Looking at this guide: http://macapper.com/...-with-xbox-360/
I believe this is what you have done. In this sense, you have used your mac computer to function as a router, or Internet relay device. In windows parlance, its referred to as ICS or internet connection sharing.
If you followed the guide above,then it should work, but milage will vary based on the search results from google.
