My wireless signal with the Sky Sagem router I currently use doesn't quite reach one of the bedroom where the kids use an iPad. If I bought the new Sky Hub would it extend the signal?
Fibre doesn't roll out until the end of the year.
My other question is, I have hard wired the house for ethernet on a gigabit switch, the router connects to it and everything then runs from there. Am I correct in thinking signal from router would be max 100mb but any other data around the network will still be 1gb speed?

Re: Sky Hub
Which Sagem router are you using?
Sky has used 3 different Sagem models (2504, 2304n and 2504N).
The Sagem 2504N has a similar WiFi signal strength Sky Hub SR101.
The Sagem 2504 is a WiFi g router and the signal strength is weak by comparison. The Sagem 2304n is an improvement on the Sagem 2504, but not as good as the 2504N & Sky Hub SR101.
Actual results do vary between homes.
As an alternative, since your current coverage is poor, you could consider getting getting a Wireless Extender and connecting to your existing Gbit LAN.
The link between the switch and the Sky router will be 100mb. The router's link to the Internet will be limited to your connection speed. However anything internally will run at either the limits of their adaptor (if it is a 100mb LAN adaptor) or up to the 1Gbit limit.
