    If you go to the old Netgear firmware FTP site where they blocked views of folder contents a few years ago, if you change the folder extensions to a valid model number in the URL it takes you to the respective router folder of course firmwares or root folder structure aren’t visible since 2014. A few days ago I was typing R9500, R9800 and XR600, XR700 to check for new models and found that of those XR700 is a valid folder. Assuming it’s the next gaming router, unfortunately other than the folder validating it’s existence nothing else is known.

    This translated page from 5/18/18 says, "On the other hand, Netgear and DumaOS will work together. Users will worry about whether this series of futures will become a firmware update orphan. The original factory said that the Pro Gaming series will be maintained in one branch, and the next generation XR700 is under planning. You can meet the market in the second half of the year."

    A translation of this page from French says, "And to address an audience as particular as the players, the manufacturer has made a bet: to propose an interface that is not his. At CES in Las Vegas, we learned that DumaOS was selected to enter the Netgear range through a first product.
    According to our information, this should also be the case for other references such as the XR700 to be launched in September, as well as references already proposed on the market. Thus, DumaOS could also be offered via a firmware update. We are waiting for more details on this point."
