Want to undo accidental IP block (target IP of "Suspicious sign in prevented")

Want to undo accidental IP block (target IP of "Suspicious sign in prevented") vdot88 6/18/12 9:36 AM
I use several androids running ICS's built-in "VOIP Account" calling
capability.  One of my VOIP providers changed their server IP address.
It logs into Google Voice to place calls through when I dial out.
The IP address change triggered a "Suspicious sign in prevented" email,
and a link in GMail to appear, where I could either confirm it as
my login attempt or NOT.  Initially, I clicked on the "NOT my login"
button (which seemed to auto-update), but then checked the IP, saw it
was my VOIP provider's, and clicked on the button indicating that it
WAS my login.

That should have worked, but now my provider's IP seems to be prevented
from logging in as me.

IS there a way to check (and reset) IPs that have been prevented from
logging in as you?  I REALLY need this IP to be reset, as GV is my primary
voice capability, and I can make NO calls until this is fixed.

IS there a GOOGLE EMPLOYEE that can remove the relevent IP address from
the Login IP-Block Table?   P-R-E-T-T-Y  P-L-E-A-S-E?  

The IP I want to unblock for such access to my Google Account is the one
for xyz.com (nnn.222.131.147) (editted).

Thanks for any help in advance.

For those that follow, I found an answer to this problem.

Google supplies a link that allows you to reset the login
for an application that wants to access your account.
They allow it to login (after you follow their link) for
10 minutes, and if you use the app within those 10 minutes
it will remember the app, and permit to use your account thereafter.

Here's the link (login to your Google account first, then click):
