I just did a quick Google on the ZTE HSUPA USB modem. What I found out is that this device is designed to work with Windows and Mac computers. So, presumably, the required system software, device drivers and whatever are available for those computers. This means that if you plug the ZTE HSUPA USB modem into either one of those types of PC's/Mac computers, it will work as advertised.
I am assuming from your post that you tried to plug your modem into the USB port on a wireless router.
Now let me try to answer your question: "Does anyone have there Mobile Internet Stick working with a wireless router sucessfully?" I would guess, with great certainty that the answer to that question is "No!".
You see, there are quite a few devices available now that have USB ports on them. As you have mentioned, this includes a number of routers that have wireless capabilities. However, these routers do not have Windows or Mac software running on them, and do not have the required device drivers and whatever that would be required to make your ZTE HSUPA USB modem work in any way shape or form. The USB ports on these routers have a variety of functions and you would need to read the documentation on a given router to determine exactly what functions the USB port on that router is meant to perform. You can be reasonably assured that working with your wireless modem is not one of them!
However, all is not lost. What you can do, is the following:
1. take your PC and get it to work with your ZTE HSUPA USB modem.
2. network that PC with other PC's in your home, using either wired (ethernet) or wireless (WiFi) connections. And yes, you could use a wired/wireless router for that function.
3. then it will be possible to get the other Windows PC's in your home to connect to the Internet through the PC with the cellular connection provided by the ZTE HSUPA USB modem.
I know it can be done quite simply. This is a standard Windows capability. I can't off the top of my head give you detailed instructions on how exactly this is done. But, either you can figure the rest out on your own, or you can post further questions here.
Unfortunately, you really have to check the manufacturer's website to see if their router is compatible with your modem.
I bought a TP-Link 3G router, model TL-MR3220 (which is for sale on Kijiji because I switched to the W35 Rocket hub when my contract expired) to use with a Sony Ericsson Rocket Stick, but they weren't compatible. Neither TP-Link, Sony or Rogers were willing or able to help, so I bought a ZTE-688 Rocket Stick, which is on the TP-Link compatible modem list and it works well. The interface on the TP-Link router is way better than that of the Rocket Hub
