On the controller with encrypt disabled, issue the following command: 

# show dot1x ap-table Static-wep 

Static-WEP Key Information

AP-MAC Key1/Size Key2/Size Key3/Size

00:0b:86:c1:ad:68 12:34:56:78:90/40-Bit(T) Key Not Set Key Not Set 
00:0b:86:c1:ad:60 12:34:56:78:90/40-Bit(T) Key Not Set Key Not Set 

This output shows the passphrase and the corresponding converted hexkey for WEP in brackets ().
