Netgear WNR2200 Version (8 or 16 mb flash)

Hi,
I have a Netgear WNR2200.
Openwrt says there are two versions - one with 8 mb flash and the other with 16 mb flash.

How do I identify the correct version of my router. I check the fccID and it is same for both EU and RU/CN

Can I get some help please.

Regards

The device page says:

"However, as far as I can see, there is difference between labels on 100RUS and WW versions: Russian (16M) version has three fields with adhesive stickers: SECURITY PIN, SERIAL, MAC; While version sold elsewhere (8M) has four: WiFi Network Name (SSID), Network Key (Password), SERIAL, MAC. It could be used as a clue, but this observation is based on only couple of routers and only definitive ways to determine fw size are via terminal or by looking at the chip itself."

Can you identify as instruction above ?

No guesswork: Open it up and take a look at the flash chip used in your device.

Ok I have 4 stickers so I will use the 8MB ver and go for it. Thanks.

FYI only - I also opened the router and found a chip Macronix MX25L6406E, as per this website this chip is 8MB (8192 KB).

I used the 8mb flash and have now uploaded and configured Openwrt on my router.
Works very well, including WiFi.
Thank you.
