Difference NR5103 vs. FWA510

Dear all

My NR5103 which is sold to non-business retail customers through various retail channels in Switzerland without any ISP connection unfortunately is not receiving any support from Zyxel as Zyxel support claimed this being an "ISP only" sold product (which is not the case in Switzerland, but anyway…).

As a consequence there is also no firmware updates.
In order to mitigate this, I was wondering if the FWA510 and NR5103 are 100% same hardware and if so, if I can upload the FWA510 hardware to the NR5103 without bricking it?

Any feedback is much appreciated :-).

Kind regards, J
