Sorry to hear about the troubles. Unfortunately, PLB cache modules are not universal - there are different types. What you should do is contact someone that sells them, and see if you can get them to specify a module particular to your board.
It might be that the 256 k module will be a different type and will work, but if it is the same the results will be as well.
Does the board currently have no cache at all?
Also, look for a jumper on the board that may be required to enable the cache module, I have seen those before.
