The Mega Drive Keyboard or Teclado Mega Net (Mega Net Keyboard) is, as its name suggests, a keyboard peripheral for the Sega Mega Drive.

This accessory was only released in Brazil, for use in conjunction with the Mega Net modem. It only works if plugged into port 2, is incompatible with any other cartridges and doesn't work along with the Team Player.

It is unusual as it contains nineteen blank keys, suggesting the design/fascia may have been recycled from somewhere else. It lacks keys such as Alt, but it adds several new ones including "Switch" (shortcut for "OK" option on screen) and "Select". Although there are brackets/curly brackets keys, neither symbols are supported, only parentheses.

The right-hand side also contains A, B, C, and Start keys, which have the same functions as a standard Control Pad; they have the same functions as the "Enter/Return", "Spacebar", "Backspace" and "Caps Lock", respectively. The arrow keys have the same functions of the controller's D-pad.
