You could ask the customer...if they're technically oriented, they may have noted this info for their router or their router config might contain it.

Normally, all of that information is in the Settings/About page. While it's probably too late now, it's always a good idea to take a snapshot of that page before trying to remove the NAND. That way if you damage the NAND trying to remove it, you'll have the info at hand. This actually happened to me just this week.

I do not think you will way success reading this information off of the chip.

However if you have the IMEI, a GSX check may tell you the Mac address.

what is a GSX Check? thanks :)

GSX Stands for Apple's Global Service Exchange. It is Apple's service information database for certain authorized re-sellers and repair centers. Someone with GSX access can look up detailed product information about an Apple device if they have the serial number/imei. This person can also sell their access under the table, which is why there are many websites that sell GSX checks for around $1 per IMEI check.
