Read again carefully my explanation.

When you contact ekiga.net, you send a SIP message to ekiga.net, port
5060. Your router is seeing that you are sending a SIP message somewhere
to port 5060, so it decides it is not a good idea, and directs that SIP
message to Tiscali instead of ekiga.net

There is no way to change that, as soon as a provider will use 5060 (the
default SIP port), then the message will be dropped.

That has nothing to do with the range of ports that Ekiga is using.
That's a problem with the destination of the message.

My advice: change your provider.
