    Have been thinking, and answered my own original question, but I could do with some input:

    Original question:

    Q "Why if my wireless network is running at 11MBps am i not recieving data at a rate of 11Mb per second?"

    A "MBps is Mega BITS per second, stupid!"

    Q2 "Oh! Silly me, well - what then is a bit?"

    A2 "I think it's like an 8th of a byte?"

    Q3 "So what speed should my data be moving at?"

    A3 "I dunno!"

    Any help, or maybe some links or something - cheers...
