Windows 7: WAN Port on Access Point - 1000M?

WAN Port on Access Point - 1000M?

I will be building my own router Via PfSense but I will be needing to purchase an Access Point to distribute wireless connectivity throughout my home.

Since my network is 1Gbps (Hard wired via ethernet), do I really need a wireless access point with a 1Gbps ethernet port to take advantage of my high speed network via WiFi or does this really matter? I figure if Wireless N has a cap of 300Mbps, that's that. I cannot get more bandwith, right?

I have been looking at Access Points lately, most the them have the 1 x 10/100M WAN ports. Very few have the 1000M (Which I believe is the same as 1Gbps) Is that correct?

Access Point
Hello, a little comprehension question: Is a AceesPoint a switch or a hub? A mean if you disable the most feature of it (firewall, DHCP,DNS,Routing) and you have no integrated switch. Only LAN and WAN ports. Thx to all ;)
