Selling my Sipgate box - any security issues?

    I've used Sipgate via my Virgin Media broadband using a Netgear TA612VSP for some years. I've now decided to abandon Sipgate and get a proper landline..

    In the early days when I first got the Netgear Sipgate device I remember logging into the thing via a browser to access the settings. I've tried doingthis again today with a view to clearing out my settings but can't seem toaccess is using the IP address suggested on the Sipgate website. I suspectthis may be because I now have my Netgear/Sipgate device connected to my recently acquired Virgin Media wireless router (Netgear again) - when I started out I had a simple Virgin cable modem.

    So the questions:

    Is there a way to access the settings in my device so I can clear them?
    If I don't clear them, and sell the device, what are the security implications?

    You should be able to get the correct I.P. for the voip adaptor by
    logging into your VM router and looking for the list of connected
    equipment. As you're voip adaptor is connected to a router, the I.P.
    address will be different to that on the sipgate website.

    someone else can make and receive calls on your account, pick up your
    voicemail etc.

    You could also change your Sipgate SIP password on the Sipgate website
    to be extra sure. (Log into website, click on Settings at top right,
    on Overview tab you will see: SIP password change
    Please note: changing your SIP password will require the
    reconfiguration of all your connected devices.
    SIP password: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
