Default Help unblocking BitComet listening port

Hi guys,

I installed BitComet today and it shows a yellow light next to my listening port, and it's telling me to check my firewall and router settings, but doesn't tell me exactly what to check for. The following is my internet set up.

Shaw cable modem --> D-Link DIR-655 router --> Zonealarm Free firewall --> my rig

I'm a noob when it comes to networking, so I'm not sure what I should be doing at this point. I found something online about port forwarding, but I don't think Shaw lets me set a static IP address and still connect to the internet.

Any help would be appreciated!
