Slingbox - Do I need to open a port?

Hi there, I own a slingbox which is sitting on top of my brothers Cable box in the USA.
I have had some issues with my Broadband speed which seems to be resolved for now and I have a sync speed of just over 3mb.
Just wanted to make sure I maximise my slingbox download speed as I only seem to get about 650kb/s speed when streaming.
Do I need to open ports on my Thompson router? If so what settings do I use?
