When I tried to parse this sentence, the closest match was:
Even if the actual in- and outbound traffic is very low, the Y-axis
still shows 1mbps.

RRDtool will do the right thing by default.  The program calling
rrdtool will have to do "--upper-limit 125000" or "-u 125000" to
emulate "Unscaled[]".

You probably have to look in routers2.cgi -or- you have set the
Unscaled option somewhere in your mrtg.cfg file.  Remove the
problem line where it occurs and you'll be fine.
