Everyone should realize they MUST use a "switch" hub for their home network to avoid bottlenecks. But, that has nothing to do with Gigabit speed VS slower Ethernet speeds such at 100baseT. Rather your home network is CAT 5e or CAT 6/6e
Why do you keep insisting this?
A little research, and I take back my "You are both right" above

I wanted to find specs on max distance for GB over CAT5, and guess what? It's the same as 100 TX. GB was designed to work over existing installations. 90% of existing Cat5 100 TX installations will support GB up to 100 meters, the remaining 10% are likely due to poor or non-standard connections.

Oh, and Dennis is 100% correct about the switched network.


GXCEB0TD - 69hrs - TurboNet
HDVR2 - 107hrs - BASH over USB/Ethernet
