Probably not.
I was thinking, that I could get to these websites from my wii, instead of bringing down a computer.

Also, for more devious reasons, one, so when my parents limit my computer time, I can use my wii instead.
Also, it might give me an excuse for using the wii "I'm doing my homework".

It definitely is NOT worth it if you already have regular access to the internet, as you seem to have. Its a pain in the a$$ to type; basically a "virtual keyboard" pops on the screen and you hunt and peck with your wiimote. It really slows you down and can be fairly frustrating for someone like myself who can normally type fairly fast (I'm begging you Nintendo... make a keyboard attachment!!!). For me it was a matter of not having a computer right now. If you're still interested I'll go ahead and lay out what you need to do, just let me know.

Nintendo has added keyboard support to the wii. Plug in ANY usb keyboard in the back of the Wii (usb port), its that simple. You can use the keyboard for just about anything now. You can use it for the Opera online browser, you can use it to write messages to your friends on your Wii, and you can use it to type out your Wii point cards in the Wii Shop Channel.

I'm like an Ambassador of the Wii system, hit me up with question if you like. I'm an expert. :)

Another cool thing is that you can play Wii specific online games. The wii has Flash 7 support; so any games coded in Flash 7 will work with the Wii!
Here are some sites that are dedicated towards this:

Sweeeeeet..... I'm buying one yesterday. Thanks for the info; do I have to DL an update for the browser? I've updated every time I was notified of an update and they never said USB keyboards were compatible.

Yep, if you've updated your wii you have the usb support. I'm almost 100% positive that Nintendo sent a message to everyone's wii message board telling you that it was adding usb support. Perhaps you missed that message.

They updated it on Wii firmware update 3.1

Yea the usb can be used for more than just a key board too

When I first bought my wii I was stoked and then i found the usb at that time i was really ticked off about having to turn on a pc to charge my ipod but i tried to plug it in to the wii and it charged beautifully never bought a single charger for the ipod either
