How about

iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wireless_essid jsnet2
        wireless_key open b691e59fb64dd76fce5b7edef0

and set your accesspoint accordingly, that works for me with an mpi350 card.
The alternative 'restricted' AKA shared key is said to be insecure.

BTW, it is really only 104-bit, they are cheating when they say 128.
