I don't know how iwconfig does the transformation from the ASCII
string "mypass" to the 64 or 128 bits WEP key. Usually, this algorithm 
is highly dependent of the vendor, so the only solution to achieve
interoperability with such hardware is to enter the WEP key in 
hexadecimal form, to avoid confusion. Most AP give an access to the 
raw hexadecimal string of their WEP key.

Best wishes,
