How to Determine which module to select in the Flashwriter Procedure

When running Flashwriter, you will be required to enter the W-WAN cellular module. 
 
The following excerpt was taken from the Knowledge Base Article How to identify a Digi TransPort WR series router from its part number (SKU).
 
You may find the SKU for the Digi TransPort on the bottom of the unit.  It will be listed as “PN”.  The SKU is also listed on the Home Page of the WebUI of your Digi TransPort under “Part Number”.
 
The Digi TransPort SKU has the following format:
MMMM-NNHH-WSS-PP
 
We are concerned with NN, which is the Network and represents the type of module within the TransPort.  Here is a list of the type of cellular module for this two character designation followed by the option you should select for your module when running flashwriter:

For instance, if you have a WR21-U92A-DE1-TB, the characters you are concerned with are the ‘U9’.  If you look at the chart, under the NN character column, you should find the ‘U9’ characters.  In the ‘U9’ row, you will note that this is a Telit HE910 module and you would use option 24 when selecting the Module in the FlashWriter procedure.
