Btw, I'm not sure where "40%" is in the all of the configuration process. However, if you're stuck at the point where its asking you for the router's username and password, its expecting your router to be Universal Plug and Play compatible and with that option enabled. You should skip that point by selecting the advance manual setup. This will turn on the flag for the Slingbox for internet viewing, and you can just setup the router manually for internet viewing.
I have done the manuel way and that did not work. So now I am going through the slingbox internet viewing set up which is through the web site. Its in that test that it stops at 40 percent. Its literally a timer that runs while it sets up internet viewing. Its there wghere it stops.

Go into your router and shut off Universal Plug and Play (uPnP) while doing the configuration of your Slingbox. Sling Media's implementation of uPnP is absolutley horrid. Once you turn it off, it will try and fail. Then you can do the manual configuration. You just have to configure the port forwarding rules to foward both UDP and TCP ports of your Slingbox to its private IP Address.
--here's my basic canned response--
Once you've setup the Slingbox for viewing locally, its the routers responsibility to allow remote viewing. I recommend that check your router's firewall rules. You'll need to make sure that that the corresponding public UDP and TCP ports and being forwarded to your Slingbox's private IP address.
