Port numbers for firewall port forwarding?

I'm having trouble getting my purchased version of LimeWire to work. I suspect the problem is a firewall--from my router, cable, or what came with my new computer (Mac OS 10.2), I don't know.
So far, it seems that the router is most likely suspect, however, tech support told me I need to get port numbers from the company that designed the application/service I'm trying to use. No one from LimeWire has answered my questions.
Since I've never used a router--or a firewall--at home before, is there a given port number? The LimeWire FAQ mentions "6346" for Gnutella but I gave that a shot and it made no difference.
I'm able to download maybe one in every thirty files I search for. It seems no one is able to get to my files at all. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

My SYSAD has asked me for the port information as well so he can construct an appropriate policy for the firewall. Any information is much appreciated.

I skimmed the Installation FAQ and the Firewall FAQ but did not see anything pertinent. I also skimmed the tech specs with the same results.
