You need to connect the cable to an internet modem or to a router. you dont conect the xbox to the computer.
The cable is suposed to have both ends exactly the same. the reason why you cant't fit it in your computer is becase you probably allready have a cable with internet connection going to the computer, so connect the cable going to the computer to the xbox or get a router an connect that cable to the router and then get two more cables to go to the computer and other one to the xbox

Managing Xbox LIVE Activity Xbox LIVE Controls come into play only when you take Xbox 360 online, and they're linked to a child's profile and gamertag. When an Xbox LIVE account is created, the service asks for the member’s age to determine whether to apply Family Settings to that account. Parents are also required to create or use an existing Windows Live ID. The Windows Live ID is associated with the child’s Xbox LIVE account and protects the settings from being changed later by the child. To change a child’s settings, first select the child’s account name and connect to Xbox LIVE. Once signed in, enter your Windows Live ID password to unlock the settings. To see these controls, go to My Xbox, open System Settings, then selectFamily Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.
