Since the day I bought it I always use ethernet over USB connection, now I need to use RJ45 LAN cable to connect Beaglebone from my laptop, but my laptop can't even detect LAN connection from it, what could go wrong? Do I need straight or crossover cable? Do I need to configure something first on my BeagleBone?

UPDATE: Managed to connect it through Crossover cable and assign it IP address by running DHCP server on my laptop.

enter image description here

As seen above my laptop assign IP 169.254.223.76, but when I tried to connect to that IP using puTTY it gives me connection refused.

enter image description here Please help.

You can configure it with a static ip address, and assign your laptop a (different) static ip address. Here is a link to a guide to setting a static ip address.
