I have approx 800 sensors setup on PRTG to monitor my Cisco network. I need to identify the model of the router at my sites and was hoping that there is a sensor to do this.

If there is an OID which contains the information about the router model, PRTG could query it using a custom sensor. Please consult your manufacturer's documentation (or maybe another user has a tip?). Once you have the right OID, simply add an SNMP Custom String sensor to the device in PRTG.

There are a few custom fields that can be queried like:

Name     (OID .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.2.1.3.0)
Location (OID .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.6.0)
Contact  (OID .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0)

Maybe you can modify these to include the model name of the router.

Do you mean on the router side or on the PRTG side?

PRTG - I have found some sensors that will collect info like firmware and router name, but the entPhysicalModelName - 1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.13 doesnt work with PRTG custom string for some reason.

I'm afraid that entPhysicalModelName is not supported in all IOS branches.
