    Hi Folks,

    Just bought wireless keyboard on Saturday to go with my new Wii I bought the week before and thought I should share the good news. Argos do a Mikomi wireless USB keyboard and Mouse (although the mouse is no use for the Wii as you need to use the Wiimote) for only £12.99 and it works absolutely fine with the Wii. Catalogue number 675/2840 if your interested. Much easier when you have downloaded the internet channel or want to send your friends messages via the wii message icon

    :wink:

    I guess it does look like i'n advertising it, but totally dont work for either. just had read loads of threads asking for compatability and thought I would let the nation know!!!! But listen duds, there are probably loads that work, just trying to be helpful!!!

    How did you get it to work? I want to get a wireless keyboard too. Do you just plug it in & load up the internet channel?

    Hi Smurfette,
    Yeah Basically. I pluged the USB connector into the back of the Wii and then pressed the sync button on the top of the receiver and the sync button on the keyboard and they both linked together by bluetooth, it was that easy. You use the Wiimote as your mouse, click on the internet channel and away you go!!!

    For those who are wondering how, an update was released recently allowing USB keyboards to be used with the Wii.

    Lol I don't own one of those keyboards but I am sure is no more than 4 batteries... Maybe just 2. It all depends in the features it has...I'll rather get a wireless white usb keyboard to go with my wii. XD

    I don't think so. Normally they give you a CD so you can install a program on your PC/Mac so the keyboard will work on your computer. The Wii will not allow you to install a program on it's EXTREMELY small hard drive. If you want a keyboard for your Wii, go for one that will work without a CD.

    Ok, I too 2nds Clive, got my keyboard today after a job interview.. This keyboard is straight forward to set up, literally plug in, sync n go jus like you did upon buying your wii n synchronizing the wiimotes.

    At 1st when i saw the price as Clive stated i thought it would be a pretty basic keyboard and would probs be just plain oblong.. but in actual fact the design is nice and it has the same hot keys i have on my standard keyboard (altho of course they cant be used with the wii but there there for if i use it with my PC).

    Thanks for pointing it out :)
