JohnnyFi,

What kind of wireless keyboards are you referring to? The official Samsung keyboards or just any old wireless keyboard?

i bought the 6100 55 inch led smart tv a week ago and have been reading about getting a qwerty remote or wireless keyboard and apparently there are none available for this model,so what i did i gave it a go with a logitech wireless keyboard and mouse bundle with cost me 15 usd and it worked perfectly so I'm super relived becouse i thought i wasn't going to be able to use the web browser ,so there you go if you have a smart tv that would not take the samsung qwerty remote or the keyboard try logitech it might work for you aswell and its a much much cheaper option,like i said it worked on d6100 55inch tv i cannot confirm ill work on another model,good luck guys

Was this a blue tooth or USB wireless Logitech keyboard. Can you provide the model number if you have it.

Thanks

I just bought the 6100 tv and added a Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400. As soon as I attached the USB adapter, the TV recognized it. the keyboard and touchpad work great. Unfortunately the apps don't automatically recognize the keyboard as the input device. When you navigate to the web browser for example, you may still have to use the TV remote to open the keyboard on the screen. but once the keyboard comes up on the screen, you can use the logitech keyboard to type in text. I'm still playing with it since I just bought the TV and keyboard two days ago.
