    194194== Choosing a BSP ==
    195195Gateworks offers several Board Support Packages for the Ventana Product family. Which one we recommend depends a bit upon what your goal is and what your experience level is
    196  * [#OpenWrtBoardSupportPackageBSP OpenWrt] - intended for wireless routers and access points (low flash and memory footprint)
     196 * [#openwrt OpenWrt] - intended for wireless routers and access points (low flash and memory footprint)
    197197  - '''Recommended for networking users wanting to create a headless router, VPN, basestation, wireless access point and more. Produces by far the smallest storage and memory footprint but users new to Embedded Linux will have a bit of a learning curve'''
    198198  - Fairly up-to-date and/or vanilla kernel support
