    USB Wireless Keyboard Compatible?

    I was wondering if anyone knows or has tried using a wireless keyboard that uses a USB dongle. For example --> Adesso 2.4GHz RF Wireless Mini USB Keyboard WKB4000US at TigerDirect.com
    It would be great to have that instead of a wired keyboard running from the system all the way to the couch.
    Or, even better, would anyone know if you can sync a bluetooth keyboard to the wii?

    I don't believe that the Wii has the drivers for any such USB device.
    Add me for Wii! PM me if you do.

    Dunno, but I can try it...

    (a few minutes later)
    Nothing with my MS wireless combo. I can turn on the function lock (which really only means that the port is powered), but nothing else. I tried moving the mouse and typing a memo on the keyboard and I got nothing.
    As far as I know, you can't use a keyboard at all with the the Wii, there is an on-screen one you use with the Wiimote.
    ... but what do I know?...

    And that is probably enough. I hope.

    That's gay. I want to message friends with a KEYBOARD. What's so hard about that? Not a deal breaker, it just means I probably won't be messaging folks :P

    At any rate, with as awesome as Nintendo is being I can forgive them for not making chatting accessible on their game console.
