Is the ZTE a supported device? Most data sticks aall handle connections differntly. If it's not a suppoirted device with drivers in the router there are no guarantees that it will work.

The ZTE is not a supported device, you will have to get another 3G Modem for it to work.

Interesting, this has only been added recently.
Since this is the case I would recommend making sure your firmware for that router is all up to date.

Doublecheck that the modem is indeed a MF636, since the MF626 is a different (cheaper) device and is often the most common device out there.

If the modem is still not connecting then see if you can borrow a MF636 from somebody else or a store and give that a go.
