Default External keyboard- does it need a widget to work?

I've just got a case with an external keypad for my 101it. When I plug the supplied usb lead in, there's no reaction from the keyboard. Do I need a widget downloading to work it, or should it plug and play?

It should be plug and play. I have plugged in a couple of keyboards without issues. Try a different keyboard to see if that's the problem. I have heard that one of the past updates for the archos killed the USB port for a lot of people. Make sure your USB port is in working condition.
