First reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds while power is ON and then after that run again the setup , just to give you a clue which one to choose for the internet setup, if you use Cable internet select Dynamic and if you use DSL internet set it to PPPoE and provide your email and password from your DSL company...
I have solved my problem, after researching various messageboards yesterday to try and discover why my Siemens Tiscali router didn't work. I'm going to send it back and go with another company!
It seems there has been a lot of debate on these messageboards about Tiscali and/or Siemens products and it now seems also that no one would recommend them. I hereby add my name to that list.
you have to configer your router are you using dsl or cabel inter net
cabel you dont need to set in log on but dsl you do
secound configer your router wireless i think you are are useing dsl speed stream bell use
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..
The Default gateway for Siemens Gigaset SE587 is 192.168.1.1. Open Internet Explorer and put the def gateway in the browser.
The default username and password for siemns router is admin.
Click on Setup Tab than Basic Setup on left hand side. Update the details as folloing- Use – Tiscali data PPPoA Interface PVC Selection – Tiscali data PPPoA Authentication – Auto User Name - Tiscali u/n Password - Tiscali password PPPoA Connection Mode- Always On NAT - ON
And click on save settings. To confirm if the customer is connected, check the status of Online light – which should be green. Alternatively click on status (On top) to check internet status to confirm connection.
Setting Up Wireless connection – Click on da wireless tab on the top.
Ensure that the Auto channel is disabled and the wireless channel is 11, wireless n/w is Enabled and mode is Mixed.
To secure the wireless connection – Click on Wireless Security option on left hand side If you want the Security mode as WPA than select the wireless security mode, as WPA and enter WPA Shared key which would be on the base ofthe router. Again click on save settings.
Try connecting to the wireless network again and I m sure it should work..... lemme know if it does.
Find the reset button on the rear panel of the wireless device and follow the factory reset instructions below:
1. Power Off the router.
2. Hold the Reset Button down while you Power On the router.
3. Continue holding the Reset Button until the Status (Red) LED blinks TWICE.
4. Release the Reset Button.
The factory default configuration has now been restored, and the Router is ready for use.
The DSL/Cable Router's default IP Address is 192.168.254.254
To establish a connection from your PC to the DSL/Cable Router:
1. After installing the DSL/Cable Router in your LAN, start your PC. If your PC is already running, restart it.
2. Start your Web browser.
3. In the Address box, enter "HTTP://" and the IP Address of the DSL/Cable Router, as in this example, which uses the DSL/Cable Router's default IP Address: HTTP://192.168.254.254
The first time you connect to the DSL/Cable Router, the Setup Wizard will run automatically. (The Setup Wizard will also run if the Router's default settings are restored.)
This should get you in the right direction.

It sounds like you are using a straight-through network cable. Try using a cross-over network cable to connect the your computer to the SpeedStream. One can be purchased for pretty cheap money from any consumer electronics store.
