Fellow M850 owners - WiFi Hotspot help?

Fellow M850 owners: I need a bit of help troubleshooting my WiFi Hotspot, which is not at all hot. It will not connect to the Internet.

Does your Wi-Fi Hotspot connect to the outside world? And if so, what in-car network is it connecting to? Is it one that begins: "Direct....[last five VIN numbers]" or is it a network called "My BMW Hotspot"?

I can find the former and it does not work. I cannot find the one called "My BMW Hotspot," which the BMW Genius claims is the one I should be finding and using, even on our iDrive 7 system.

Again, I obviously don't need your password. I just need to know the label of the in-car Wi-Fi network that is connecting you to the outside world.

Many thanks.
