That would definitely have clinched it ;-) However, I took the chance
that the "P-330W" reference in the PEAK manual actually meant something
(and the rear panel layout match to the XyXEL was enough evidence to
convince me I was correct), so I 'dived straight in' and "Just Did It!".

Thanks for the heads up on PCB markings. Next time I contemplate a
similarly speculative exercise, I'll take a peek. Anyhoo, the router is
fully functional and still giving me an internet connection (but it's
only had an uptime of 20 hours and 18 minutes 53 seconds so far).
