I realized that if I start the hotspot using the backend, then bring down wlan0 and bring it up again the WiFi network shows up. Odd

I have fmms installed but my access point is called orangemms and in MobileHotSpot under connection only orange internet is visable, no mention of any mms connection.

Has anyone got any ideas?
Well, I stumbled on to this thread with the same problem and I finally managed to get fMMS and MobileHotSpot (latest versions) working together...

1) You have to configure fMMS in Havoc Mode, so the MMS AP is hidden
2) Open x-terminal and:

cd /etc/osso-af-init/gconf-dir/system/osso/connectivity/IAP
3) Now you have to find the directory of your gprs ap enter into it and edit the configuration file, like this:

nano \%gconf.xml
4) You have to add the following line under the <gconf> root node, wherever you want:

<entry name="user_added" mtime="#########" type="int" value="1" />
Note that mtime value *shoud* be the same as other nodes in your gconf file (I think... I don't know if it's mandatory, actually)

5) Reboot your device and (maybe) things should be done!

Little explanation (based on my limited knowledge): the flag "user_added" is the same given by fMMS or fAPN to user created APs... this way we are flagging system AP as user created and somehow this does the trick, at least on my device (I read on another fAPN thread that fremantle "prefers" connecting to APs with this flag assigned)... using this configuration I can still use MMS AP, in addition to auto connect to GPRS AP and use MobileHotspot...

I don't know if it's a matter of luck, anyway hope this helps who wants to use fMMS and MobileHotspot!

Whenever I try to start this (running kp50 with bleeding-edge drivers), my n900 reboots instantly. How can I avoid this?
