    I don't know. A keyboard like the PSR-S970 uses a built-in computer as its brains, and a computer peripheral needs some sort of driver to manage the data that's passing between the peripheral and the computer. I'm not sure if the PSR-S970's operating system uses a driver that specifically handles only Yamaha's Wi-Fi adapter, or a generic one that can handle any class-compliant Wi-Fi adapter. I suspect the former is true, but if someone with a PSR-S970 or similar model happens to have a USB WI-Fi adapter handy, it would be great if they could try it and post the results.
