This is possible if you use the routers2 frontend. You need to set
which will prevent the 'k' or 'M' prefix. Then, set
and this will divide by 1000000 and display everything with an Mb/s suffix.
Effectively, this will then show everything as Mb/s.
If you are also using the 95thPercentile/Totalling feature, you will need
so that it is totalled with the correct units.
