    Are you sure you're using a compatable keyboard? The one's which seem to be compatable are the really basic ones without any special keys or programmable options.

    Where are you trying to use the keyboard, in the internet channel? Because you have to update that too. The firmware update alone doesn't enable keyboard use in the internet channel.

    The internet channel has been updated to allow keyboard support, but you have to redownload it from the shopping channel. It's not the firmware update along that makes it work is what I was trying to say.

    I tried redownloading the Internet Channel. Before I did so, it told me it would only work with the Wii Remote. I redownloaded it anyway and my USB keyboard still doesn't work

    if money is not an issue then the logitech classic keyboard 200 is a great buy. they have it at amazon or tiger direct for $15.00 or something like that. i know it works because i have it and it works with the wii.

    It should work in both as long as you have the latest firmware update and the latest internet channel update.
