    Hey there. Firstly, I'd like to state that this is my first time, as well as first post on this forum. My name's Greg, and I'm a new Wii owner (Just got it about a week ago). Today I learned how to connect it to the internet, and the first thing I did was play some Animal Crossing online with a friend of mine overseas. After realizing how tedious it was to type out sentences to friends using the Wiimote+on-screen keyboard, I ran downstairs and grabbed the only spare keyboard in the house; a wireless Microsoft Laser Keyboard 4000. Now, I can plug in the wireless receiver and see the little lights blink, but when I try connecting the keyboard to the receiver, I can't get it to work.

    I'm unsure as to whether this is a problem with the receiver being in the Wii or simply because a disc was needed to "install" the keyboard on to the computer.

    I'd appreciate any help.

    The keyboard may require a driver to work, unfortunately this cant be done on the wii :(

    If the keyboard doesn't work in the BIOS of your computer, you're most likely out of luck.

    Get a wired keyboard. They work just fine.
