    tri-force.

    The same things happens to my keyboard as it doesn't have a numpad at the side and Opera turns on Number Lock by default.

    Check your keyboard for a key called "NumLk". You may have to press Fn+NumLk to get those keys back.

    Thats cool.

    I'm glad you have your keyboard working - it so much nicer using the keyboard than the Wiimote to type in things.

    Has anyone figured out a way to make one of the function keys act as the "OK" key? It's rather annoying to be typing a message or filling out an entry spot on the browser and then to have to stop and pick up the wiimote to click on OK.

    Is alt + enter really "ok" ? I'm also looking for a relatively cheap wireless usb keyboard for my Wii. Does anyone know some good ones that work?

    Edit: Here are some shortcuts you can use which I found on a site posted by someone on these forums:

    alt enter: select "OK" in the Wii virtual keyboard screen (very handy when filling in text boxes)
    alt backspace: select "Quit" in the Wii virtual keyboard screen
    up arrow: scroll page up
    down arrow: scroll page down
    left arrow: scroll page left
    right arrow: scroll page right
    + sign: zoom in (also num pad)
    - sign: zoom out (also num pad
    backspace: previous page
    ctrl left arrow: previous page
    ctrl right arrow: next page

    They were using the Logitech Cordless Desktop S510.

    I've tested 3 keyboards on the wii (a wireless Microsoft one, a cheapo 5.00 one from Tescos and a wired Zippy keyboard with blue lights behind the keys)

    All work really well with the wii, so I don't think you are going to have any problems using any keyboard. Just make sure that it has a USB plug!

    One problem I have with the Zippy keyboard is that when the wii is on standby mode, the usb port still provides power to the keyboard, so the background keyboard lights stay on all the time! I can switch the lights off on the keyboard, but they always go on if I hit standby on the wiimote, or leave Opera and go to the wii menu, or even when starting a game.

    It's really weird but its like the wii resets itself when you start a different software/game than the one you are using. Basically, avoid luminescent keyboards!!!
