    I connected my apple wireless keyboard up with my ipad2. A number of the keys are all scrambled. The z is a y....the @ is an A...etc. Moved it back to the imac and it works fine. I see no place on the ipad where the lay out paramenters can be changed? Help!

    Did you make sure your settings are set to English (USA) and not some other language/country?

    I couldnt find any setting for the language, but after your question went back to general settings again and finally found it 4 levels down in the menus..language was set to english, but the keyboard hardware was set to german....how that happened I will never know!
    Thanks for your tip

    Hi Suee - how did you get your iPad 2 to stay "connected" to your Apple wireless keyboard? I have to "re-pair" the devices and even then, the keyboard just stops typing completely; it will not respond. I've tried fresh batteries, turned off all bluetooth devices... nothing will allow the keyboard to work (even though the iPad 2 shows it as being "connected". Thanks for any info you can provide!
