The graph needs to be created that way from the beginning.  Go to the device, select create graphs.  At the bottom of the page there is a drop-down list for speeds.

Options[label]: option-namesOptions allow you to handle special cases. Some good examples are:

growright: By default, mrtg draws graphs from right to left. If you want to go the other way, use this option.

bits: This changes the graphs from measuring bytes to bits. Bits are not only more impressive, they may be more accurate depending on what you're measuring.
