Before even starting to change anything in *wnr612v2*.dts* I've built
and flashed an openwrt master ath79 image for that router (I own a few).
MAC addresses set by original DT file were definitely bogus. Netgear's
u-boot source also points to 'pre-art' area not u-boot binary. I guess
location was inherited from other 7240-based router but definitely it
does not play well for any WNR model.
Maybe product called On Networks N150 (rebranded WNR612v2) had this
sort of setup... Personally I doubt they (ON) cared to recompile their
own u-boot and OS but I do not have such device to verify that claim.
