You have configured your AirPort Base Station for 128-bit WEP authentication, and have assigned a network passphrase. Why would you need to distribute the 26-digit hex key to your users?
WEP with 802.1x requires a hex key for asymmetric encryption
The hex key allows for compatibility with older machines and different platforms
WEP requires users to enter a hex key to connect to the network using 128-bit encryption.
You want the strongest possible WEP key: a hex key is stronger than a passphrase, because it is not susceptible to dictionary attacks.
