    Wow, you are lazy. There is no way to know for sure unless you open it up. I wouldn't trust the installer either.

    Easy, look at the bottom of your Wii, there should be a sticker there with a barcode on it.
    Check which one you got here:

    Europe

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A (Compatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LEH 100XXXXX
    - LEH 101XXXXX
    - LEH 102XXXXX
    - LEH 103XXXXX
    - LEH 104XXXXX
    - LEH 105XXXXX
    - LEH 106XXXXX
    - LEH 107XXXXX
    - LEH 108XXXXX
    - LEH 10812XXX
    - LEH 1085XXXX
    - LEH 1089XXXX
    - LEH 1091XXXX
    - LEH 109128XX
    - LEH 109166XX
    - LEH 10979XXX

    GC2R - D2B (Incompatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LEH 10889XXX
    - LEH 1089XXXX
    - LEH 109225XX
    - LEH 10924XXX
    - LEH 1100XXXX
    - LEH 1101XXXX
    - LEH 1104XXXX

    For European models it seems the D2B chip was introduced somewhere between LEH 1088XXXX and LEH 1097XXXX.
    If your serial is below LEH 1088XXXX there is a 98% chance you don't have the D2B chip.
    I your serial is between LEH 1088XXXX and LEH 1097XXXX the chance you have the D2B chip is about 50%.
    If your serial is above LEH 1097XXXX there is a 98% chance you have the D2B chip.


    North America

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A (Compatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LU 100XXXXXX
    - LU 101XXXXXX
    - LU 102XXXXXX
    - LU 103XXXXXX
    - LU 104XXXXXX
    - LU 1050XXXXX

    - LU 300XXXXXX
    - LU 301XXXXXX
    - LU 302XXXXXX
    - LU 303XXXXXX
    - LU 304XXXXXX
    - LU 305XXXXXX
    - LU 306XXXXXX
    - LU 3066XXXXX
    - LU 30677XXXX

    - LU 502XXXXXX
    - LU 503XXXXXX
    - LU 504XXXXXX
    - LU 505XXXXXX
    - LU 506XXXXXX
    - LU 5074XXXXX
    - LU 5077XXXXX

    GC2R - D2B (Incompatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LU 1047XXXXX
    - LU 10510XXXX
    - LU 1054XXXXX

    - LU 3070XXXXX
    - LU 3072XXXXX
    - LU 3074XXXXX

    - LU 50853XXXX
    - LU 5089XXXXX
    - LU 5092XXXXX
    - LU 5094XXXXX
    - LU 5095XXXXX

    For North-America it appears that there are three different ranges in use (LU1/LU3/LU5).
    Its possible that each range is used in a different area, factory or language pack.
    Each range will have a number where the D2B chip is introduced.
    For LU1 this seems to be around LU 104XXXXXX and LU 105XXXXXX.
    For LU3 its between LU30667XXXX and LU3070XXXXX and
    for LU5 its somewhere between LU 5077XXXXX and LU50853XXXX.

    Australia

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A (Compatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LAH 10067XXX


    Japan

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A (Compatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LJH 102XXXXX

    GC2R - D2B (Incompatible with first generation mod chips)
    - LJH 1038XXXX

    If your Wii is in the compatible list with first gen modchips, then i guess you have the Wiikey, if it is in the incompatible, then it's another modchip, like the D2pro.

    (Sorry if this post is too long btw)

    yeah, i know i have the later version wii, so it's the later chips
    it's most likely d2pro or maybe key

    anyways, they both use the same wiikey config disc to update right? so i wouldnt worry about which version to update

    If you can peek inside of the Wii while it's on, you may see LED lights.
    The D2Pro has led status lights, so if you see lights it's a D2Pro, otherwise it's a D2CKey or D2CPro.
