Yes, that's quite possible, because m0n0wall simply looks for the
string "PC Engines WRAP" in the dmesg output to decide that it's
running on a WRAP. I didn't realize than on some (early?) boards, the
BIOS does not set that string, but that's quite clearly the case:

-> Funny that they're both the same BIOS version...
I guess you'll simply have to upgrade the BIOS to make it show the
proper platform. Or if this becomes a widespread problem, we'll have
to make the status page look at something else (e.g. NIC names) instead.
