Recently got siemens gigaset SE587 router from Tiscali but it will not get a stable ADSL light unless I connect my old Modem into another phone socket in the house. And yes, all the old modem needs is to be connected with the ADSL wire ONLY into another filter in another socket and bingo the router works! Unplug the old modem and the router drops the connection giving a flashing ADSL light?

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL
Oops - wrong button pressed. This was meant as a solution, not as a clarification request.
You did not mention for what application you want to set portforwarding for. Take a look at this page. It gives you detailed instructions for all kinds of applications. If yours is not in the list, you can still follow the general instructions.

pile of ****!.. the edimax print server doesnt seem to regonise and connect to wireless networks if they have a "space" in there name!.. took me ages to figure that out!.. and now its conected it constantly comes up with a communication error during printing!
the ipaddress of the router may not be 192.168.1.1 it should say somewhere on the router or the documentation
if you are suing DHCP to allocate the IP address, and the router is set as a DHCP server you should be able to see the ipaddress using whatever tools Apple give on settign up networks.
I think there is possibly something wrong with your telephone line setup check that no phone is connected unless its through a adsl filter, or you have an adsl socket on the master socket in the house. The fact that you are not getting the online light to light up suggests to me that the router isn't talking ADSL network. consider removing ALL phones temporarily and see if that helps...
you should be able to PING an IP Address, again I don't know how youd do that on a MAC, hate 'em personally.
usually all you need to know are the IP address of the gateway (the router). set the DNS to the same IP address, unless Tiscali advise otherwise
the ADSL filters should only remove the hissing noise on the telephone line, so after plugging in the filter the phone should work as normal..
