Searching on www.cisco.com for "flash SIMM 4700" yields the following URL:


which claims 16 Mb is the maximum (2 x 8Mb SIMMs).

The funny thing is that this page explicitely mentions a "4800 M" router,
which I've never seen advertised before.  I've seen a reference to the
4800 M on another (memory-upgrade) page, but that could have been a typo -
this page here is very explicit about the differences.

The interesting thing about the 4800 M is that it officially supports 
128 Mb of DRAM (!!).

Can anybody shed some light on this?  Is the 4800 M "just" a more recent
board version of the 4700 M?  (I know a colleague that has box that was
purchased as 4700 M but runs fine with 128 Mb of DRAM!)

How can you determine whether a box is a 4700 M or 4800 M?
