I did a quick look and found these. They look like they use the 2.4 Ghz band. They should be compatible using a little included dongle.

If you already have one it should work fine. If you have not bought one yet they seem to cost about 20 dollars. I would personally spend just a few dollars more and pick up this. It's a Logitech K400 Plus. While it also uses a dongle it is a little bigger then the Rii and decently built.
If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.
