Hex and ASCII Keys

I have the following setup using WPA, so far been working perfectly with a
64 length hex encryption key

HP Procurve 420 Wireless Access Point (running in mixed 802.11b / 802.11g)
Various 3Com wireless cards, some 11b some 11g
All connect fine and are stable within good range of the access point

I have now added an HP Wireless Print Server - JetDirect 380x (supports WPA,

The problem is; the HP Wireless Print Server ONLY seems to accept an ASCII
WPA key (up to 63 characters).

Our key, and ALL other devices, is a Hex key (64 digits in length).

Is it possible to convert the key to ASCII? Will this then work do you
think, for the print server?

Any other suggestions?
