"3753-30000501R" and the Cisco logo is silkscreened on the board in the FCC photos.

This device seems to be another BCM5358UB0 (identifiable in FCC photos) + BCM43236x (not identifiable) device.

Flashed with third party firmware, dmesg reports:

  • 8MB ST compatible serial flash
  • CPU: BCM5357 rev 2 at 300 MHz
  • Determined physical RAM memory: 65536k
  • ethx: Broadcom BCM47XX 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Controller

This data was used to determine Flash and RAM size

The default SSID pattern is CiscoXXXXX, where XXXXX is the last 5 digits of the router's serial number.
