Windows 7: Port Forwarding

Port Forwarding

So kinda bad with programming and what not but here's the thing

My parents have a firewall block (Netgear Router) for internet access. It comes on at 6p.m. the reason being is my parents don't want my sister on at night, but they said I could.... yet the block applies to everyone. I was looking into ways that I could get around the firewall schedule and found port forwarding.
At first tried it on my xbox, and it worked (used a tutorial), all I needed was my xbox IP and the port #'s the tutorial told me.
Now I want to try it on my laptop, but the thing is I don't know how.
I got my IP #, but how do I get ports? Is there some way to find out what ports I need to open for a laptop, or is there already ports determined? I'm lost.
anything would be helpful.

If your parents have approved it and you do in fact have the log in information for the router
there is a easy to use program for this.
