    So, I just bought a wireless keyboard for my Wii, it's a 2.4GHz wireless keyboard by SlicK (SKMB2010). It works fine when I plug it into my computer (Windows), but when I plug it into my Wii, it won't work.

    Is there any certian way to get this to work with my Wii, or should I return it? [​IMG]

    I've heard certain keyboards don't work.

    You should return it and try to find a PowerBoard. It's specifically designed for Wii, yet works on my computer too. It's well worth it's price. ($35?)

    Behind you.
    It also is a more compact keyboard, just a bit smaller than regular wireless keyboards. You should look for this one, and return the one you just bought. Maybe another logitech keyboard works as well?

    I have the official Wii keyboard from Logitech and it works flawlessly.

    I may purchase the Datel Powerboard for my second Wii to try it out as it has good reviews.

    Depends they are cheaper in the US as Australians always get stuff overpriced. I got the Logitech one for $49.95 New in box. I just did a quick search and i found the Dalet Powerboard for $35-$45.
    Try eBay

    Well, actually I just tried it with the Internet Channel, and it seems to be working. I should've tried it on more than one game before making a thread. [​IMG]

    Anyway, it must just be an Animal Crossing issue.

    If your going to use Animal Crossing you have to get a CIOS with base 38. I used waniniko's on 250 for it

    The should start fine, but if you want KB support you need to have that cIOS and have it plugged in before booting the game. To check if the keyboard works at all. Just go to like any part of the system menus with a text field input. Wii Msg board works.
