    keyboard question

    i looked around and couldnt find a real solid answer, and i appologize if this is redundant

    i just got my wii online and think its awesome on my 73" tv, i understand that any usb plug and play keyboard will work, but i really dont care to run a usb cable 10 feet across my living room floor, is there a wireless keyboard that will for sure work without issue?

    You need to get a wireless keyboard whose dongle does ALL the work translating it into standard keyboard signals.

    If it requires software then it probably won't work

    I just got one of the Madcatz keyboards like idjut mentions. Nice, small, good feel, but unfortunately doesn't work. It's on it's way back to be exchanged for another one.

    On the plus side, Madcatz' tech support was first rate - I don't remember the last time I called a company for tech support and they actually answered their own phones!

    No keyboards work on any channel other than the internet channel.

    This feature is not system-wide, only on the internet channel.

    Completely wrong, sorry XD
    Nintendo actually added keyboard support to the Wii message board before they did to the Internet Channel. It's also supposed to work for suggesting questions on the Everybody Votes Channel, but for some reason it doesn't for me.
