Did you read the linked thread… the reason is clearly stated:

The reason why the later versions don't/wouldn't work is because TP-Link has programmed the bootloader to disable the WAN port if it detects another firmware variant aside from its original one

Based on your own screenshot, what h/w revision do you think you have?

Which range does it match?

Is the 8/64 configuration suitable for home use?

but it got an USB port, where you can extend the storage space
