I was wondering, with a basic keyboard, could you hook it up to your wii, and use it to type stuff on the internet channel?

Yes, just plug it into the back of your Wii on the USB port.

To my wii, there are 2 thin USB things, and my keyboard has one circular large thing :/

Then it isn't a USB keyboard. You need a USB one.

You can also buy a PS2 (the plug type, not the console) to USB adapter.

Ok, thanks. I think that my Dad has a USB keyboard, so I might be able to use it =P

Could you use a regular adapter to put the keyboard in?

I don't see why not. However, some USB keyboards don't work with Wii, so it is possible that the adapter would not be compatible.

Regular adapter?

But anyway, to use your PS/2 keyboard, just use a PS/2 to USB connector; they're pretty common, and should be pretty cheap.

By any chance, is there a keyboard built especially for the wii, which is wireless/not wireless?

I'm going to buy a USB keyboard soon =)
