Specs: Win XP Pro, AMD Athlon 64 2800/1GB

At the moment I have a home gigabit network and away to get ADSL, so how can I attach a adsl model to my hub so we all can share the connection?

You can't. You will need an ADSL router, preferably one with a built in switch.

However, as far as I am aware, all ADSL routers only have 100 Mbs connections which is more than adequate for ADSL speeds.

Gigabit is a bit of overkill for a home network.

But can I connect an ADSL modem/router to a gigabit switch? So I can still use the gigabit network?

I know all adsl speed will be 10/100 but the rest of my network will be gigabit for transferring files etc.

your adsl connection will be like 2-3 meg at most , your connection up to your switch will be 10/100 if your current switch can autonegotiate down without a problem . It will go adsl modem--->adsl router wan port--- adls router switchport---->gigabit switch .
