Connect an ethernet cable from the MacBook to the iMac.
From the Macbook, do System Preferences > Sharing and turn ON "Internet Sharing.
Set the options so they look like this:
except click the checkbox so internet sharing is "on." (I didn't turn it on when I made the screnshot.)
That should route internet servtce from the wireless access of the MB to the iMac.
You should be able to use a standard cat5 patch cable but. if that doesn't work, try either connecting via an ethernet hub or use a crossover cat5 cable. I think the iMac is new enough to not require a crossover but I add this as an option.

Thanks. I turned on internet sharing via ethernet on the macbook and connected it to the imac with a regular 5 foot cat 5e cable. So far, no internet access in the macbook. It's strange because when I run the "network diagnosis" from within safari it says my internet connection is working fine, but i dont have internet access on the imac.
