Enterprise Gateway with ODBC

I set up Enterprise Gateway on our server with the ODBC connection. When I go to Gateway Connection i only see my Personal Gateway (The enterprise gateway option is greyed out). I read on the forums that you have to Make your Data Source Name in Enterprise gateway match exactly with your PBI desktop report. My question is what exactly should be the Data Source Name? I tried using Data Source Name as the DSN, and Connection String as "DSN=mydsnname" (I know the connection string is correct because it passes "Test all Connection"). I have attached screenshots of my PBI Desktop Advanced Query Editor and the Enterprise Gateway Manager setup. It seems the ODBC option in Enterprise Gateway is not well documented. Any ideas?

@cgtechneaux I think connection string for the gateway options should be as seen in query editor ie everything between dobule quotes which starts from "Provider=" upto end of that double quote. Try that out and see if it works.
