How to change data display from bytes to bits   15 June 2021, 16:15

Hi,
Despite us changing the multiplier to 1024 on the Main tab in the Settings, all the readings, graphs, speedmeter, etc are still showing in kB/s rather than kbit/s. Can you assist?

The Multiplier that you are trying to set determines how megabytes are calculated from bytes: whether 1 megabyte equals 1000 * 1000 bytes or 1024 * 1024 bytes. That is, whether they are megabytes (MB) or mebibytes (MiB).

If you want the graphs and speed meter to display information in bits per second instead of bytes per second, you need to change the Transfer rate unit on the Graph tab in the Settings:
