That depends on the quality of the hub and also on the number of users connected to the hub. Using a switch instead of a hub should give you approx. 180m. per port.

the rule for patch cables is 3 meters (7.5 feet) but i have a 100 foot stranded patch cable here i use for testing and i routinely put in 25 foot patch cables for folks.

The answer is:

100 Meters (328 Feet)

(At least this is the "book" answer.
