like i said i did a speed test and i can download stuff with my browser the speed test said megabits so i assumed it was megabits but ok i was just asking a question not asking u to criticize me for misspelling a word calm down lol
Then you need to provide a screenshot of where you're getting this 11 something.

This is a hobby that requires precision. Whether your download was in megabits or megabytes is the difference between something being wrong and something working exactly as it should. Sometimes, getting a single letter or number wrong can be something that destroys a key component.

If you're going to get all hot and bothered by being asked to be precise, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone to spare the time to help you with your possible problem.

How are you measuring 11 megabits per second from download? Steam and XBox do not express download speeds in megabits but in megabytes. MBps and MB/s means megabytes. Mbps and Mb/s means megabits. They are not the same thing. There are eight bits in a byte; ISPs give speed in megabits while actual downloads are given in megabytes.
