Add bin image for WRT600N v1.1 (WRT600NV11)

Description

WRT610N profile works for WRT600NV11, but the bin image is needed to flash it the first time. The mkimage utility from Linksys to create bin from trx is attached. Their code isn't available on their site any more, I had to request for it. Not sure if it's legal to attach the file here, if not, please delete.

The precompiled bin (openwrt-wrt610n_v1-squashfs.bin ) in the download section doesn't seem to contain the switch driver kmod-bcm57xx. There are people like me who don't know how to use a serial connection, so it's probably better to include it for both WRT610N and WRT600NV11.

The mkimage tool is rejected as potential spam, had to use base64 encoder to get around it.

kmod-bcm57xx is not needed any more use kmod-switch instead.

I can not find a valid vendor image for the WRT600NV11 at linksys's website.

Does using the openwrt-wrt610n_v1-squashfs.bin image work for you? This already contains the Ethernet and switch driver.

Barrier Breaker image works for WRT600NV11. I used sysupgrade to flash. http://downloads.openwrt.org/barrier_breaker/14.07-rc3/brcm47xx/generic/openwrt-brcm47xx-generic-squashfs.trx

Bcm4705-wl profile (tg3 + broadcom-wl) also works.

make image PROFILE=Bcm4705-wl

It'd be good to include the USB driver (ohci) in the profile, so that people don't have to check which USB interface it uses. (e.g. https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/branches/backfire/target/linux/brcm-2.4/profiles/WRT610Nv1.mk)

What's the gz (openwrt-brcm47xx-generic-squashfs-gz.trx) image? How is it different from the non-gz version?

If you need to analyse the vendor image format, it's easy to generate one yourself by using the attached file mkimage.base64. You can use base64 or the aforementioned decoder web page to decode.

base64 -d -i mkimage.base64 > mkimage
chmod u+x mkimage
./mkimage openwrt-brcm47xx-generic-squashfs.trx


I get quite a few kernel warnings like below (also had this with Backfire), is it possible to fix?

br-lan: received packet on wl0 with own address as source address
br-lan: received packet on wl1 with own address as source address

STP doesn't help

brctl stp br-lan 1


Are the messages below something to worry about?
