What are the UK regional settings for Cisco, Linksys and Sipura SIP adapters and telephones?

If you have purchased a Cisco, Linksys or Sipura SIP adapter or telephone it will come configured for the US telecom system as standard. This means they will have US style tones, sounds and that some UK phone features may not work correctly unless we make some configuration changes in the settings menu of the device.

First you will need to login to your Cisco, Linksys or Sipura SIP adapter or telephone's web based GUI by typing the IP address of the device into your web browser. (There is no need to enter "http://" before the IP address.) If prompted enter the username and password to complete the process, you should now have access to the devices Web based GUI, from here you can configure and setup your device for use with your VoIP provider.
