1. Driver play an important role in wireless products.
2. Also you need to check the manual for the distance approved to move the keyboard.
3. Elaborate on the output. qwerty = qwerty
4. Go to Control Panel and check the regional and language Options to English.

Regards,

Jahangir.

Which keys are different?

It's normally a result of:
a) a spillage of fluid on the keyboard (sometimes they dry out, sometimes they don't...)
b) incorrect language settings (but that would affect all keyboards, and you say your wired one is OK)
c) weak batteries - giving either slow response or missing letters
d) wireless receiver in a bad place to receive the signal

Your example shows the correct keys ["qwerty = qwerty "]

Are the "wrong" keys the U,I,O,P,J,K,L,;,and M keys?    On many wireless keyboards that don't have a separate numeric pad, these keys have dual functions ... as their "normal" keys and also as a numeric keypad.     If you're getting numbers and symbols from these keys, you simply have to press the NumLk key to switch them back to their normal keys.


If that's not the issue, then check the keyboard settings in Control Panel to be sure you haven't selected an alternate keyboard layout (Dvorak, etc.).

If it's not just a weak battery (I presume you've tried replacing the batteries), I'd simply replace the keyboard.    They're very inexpensive -- you can get the complete wireless desktop (keyboard & mouse) for $36.91

... if you've just recently bought the keyboard, you can simply get it replaced under warranty.   But otherwise I'd just buy a new one.
