TalkTalk Labs are taking applications from ADSL and Fibre customers for a trial of the D-Link DSL 3780. It's a 4 port N router, with enhanced components and features.

To apply, please make sure you have an Extended Profile (We will only be selecting from applicants with Extended Profile) and follow the trial links on www.talktalk-labs.com.

Sorry, we are not accepting applications from TalkTalk TV customers at this time, until it has undergone further TV-specific testing. Please refrain from applying if you have TalkTalk TV (YouView) or the legacy TV platform.

Good luck, we'll announce those who have been selected over the next week or so.:cool:

Thanks all
Kind Regards,

TalkTalk Labs

In seriousness, Gromit,it is the same appearance, but different components and Extended UI (as they are different manufacturers). The shell or mould of the unit is the same though, I think the LED's are slightly differently positioned and named.

The USB port is more "Plug and Play" than the HG533 though, which makes it pretty attractive if you have a hard drive or printer to plug in.

Thanks for applying

Ah-ha, looks like the SKY way of doing things dare I say: same skin, different innards. 🙂

Thanks for the extra info, although I did realise it only looked similar to the HG533 😉 I think it was the D-Link 3680 recently which was also very similar in looks to the HG523a :s

The HG533 is still not all that on the wireless front, perhaps this one will be better?

Since the USB is more plug amd play compared to the HG533 then thats got to be a plus (hasn't it) 😛

I found the HG533 to have very good wireless coverage myself, but your Mac kit may well like the D-Link better who knows, the 2680 gave good wireless performance with your Apple kit didn't it Chiz?

And there goes the neighbourhood.

Decided to take a break from LG Smart TV's - trialling a new router can't give as much grief - can it ?
