There are 3 options of entering the wep key
1. Hex
3. Passphrase

I suspect you're using 3 but really need 2. The difference is that the
Passphrase option is used to generate a key, while the ASCII string is
the key.
If using the old method of configuring - then it should be a radio
button selection to pick ASCII, or if using network manager - use the
drop down as suggested above and select the ASCII option - something
like "..48/104bit ASCII"
