I confirm this issue.
Router Linksys WRT610Nv2 / Linksys E3000, OpenWRT release r42625.
I've fixed "sh: 0xffff: bad number" bug, but it doesn't help:

I kindly ask the above patch by Vanav be added for the chaos calmer final release.
I.e. as of CC-rc1 the above patch has not been merged yet (same thing as in BB).
It fixes the sh: 0xffff: bad number problem (I always include this manually in my imagebuilder builds).

As to the wifi does not start, that is another bug /ticket/17262.html
