If its plugged into the network it should have an IP address.  The 3G Microcell uses an IPSEC VPN tunnel and NAT Trans, there should be no need to forward any ports to the device since it goes out over 443 and connects to AT&T's network.  If you have the ports it uses forwarded elsewhere though you may run into troubles.  The only other way to see it is to delete all of your dhcp leases from the router. Then clear the table and plug the #g Microcell in.  Then you will have the MAC address which you can use to forward.
