    At least one wireless keyboard works!

    I am using the Logitech MX3200 wireless desktop right now to type this message on my Wii. It seems to be working great. I'm especially happy because it was on sale at Staples for $30 8>
    It was a bit tricky to get it to work though. I had to install it on my PC, install the Logitech SetPoint software and go through the security setup that pairs the wireless dongle with the keyboard. Funny how that wasn't in the instructions, Logitech -- the keyboard wouldn't even work with the PC until I did that. But after it was done, I just unplugged the dongle, plugged it into the Wii, and started typing. It is extremely awesome to be sitting on my couch with a keyboard on my lap. It's like having a really light laptop with a huge screen.
    I hope this helps someone looking for a wireless keyboard to use with the Wii.

    I have already noticed that in Super Paper Mario. There was a clock placed somewhere and it told the real time, niffty.

    First do the firmware update to v3.1, then go into the shop channel and download an update for both the Internet Channel and the Everybody Votes Channel

    Yup, of course . I mean they have overpriced Nintend-brand SD cards, don't they? However...they have already announced Logitech as a partner, and as such, already began promoting one of their non-wireless usb keyboards

    Meh, $30 is a lot to spend on a wireless keyboard for a device that hardly uses it. Well, not a lot, but it's not cost-effective. I was planning on finding a dirt-cheap Microsoft Wireless Keyboard with just basic functionality for under $10.

    Where'd you hear of this?

    I've never seen a wireless keyboard anywhere for $30 or less. Do tell where you're finding one for under $10. The one I bought was deeply discounted – a $50 instant rebate and a $50 online rebate. And a device that hardly uses it? That depends on you, I guess. I sure find it handy to sit on my couch and use my gmail account to e-mail family and friends instead of being hunched over a computer screen.

    It also encourages more family participation in using the Internet because we don't have to crowd around behind the person sitting in the computer chair, we can sit on the couch or chair or floor and the TV is easy to read. My wife and I sit and read the news together, or watch Youtube videos together. It's great.

    The only thing holding the Wii back from being an excellent family-friendly way to access the Internet is the number of websites compatible with the Wii version of the Opera browser.

    I'm glad you asked me where i found it because i tried to find where i had seen it and found the answer i was looking for.
