First, if it supports 128 bit, use that instead. It's MUCH stronger encryption.

That said, I think you're still confusing a passphrase with an
encryption key. The 26 digit key you see in the panel is a key. Make
sure that you're not trying to put that into your setup in Windows as
a passphrase.

You might need to reboot after setting it to get everything in sync.

After a reboot, can you connect to the router's settings page?
