It's available on some ICE routes, but not all. Cost wise, it's free in first class, chargeable in standard class, though there's a small number of roaming partners with whom you can get online in standard class too (mostly T-Mobile Germany though) DB have a page that lists the current routes it's available on, and have a pdf map. I believe it's being ...

You are incorrect, cars are not numbered 1-8 and 11-18, they are numbered 1-8 or 11-18. From the webpage you link to: coach 1 to 8 or coach 11 to 18.

carriages are numbered as follows: coach 1 to 8 or coach 11 to 18 Note that's "or", not "and" - TGVs are sometimes joined together in pairs (not on the Lyria routes, but the trains are the same trains) and then one train is 1-8 and the other is 11-18. So yes, 1 and 11 are the same, etc. I can't explain the two different numbers.
