RVL200 Unsuccessful InterVLAN Routing: What don't I get?

    RVL200 firmware 1.1.7.

    2 VLANs set up, Access mode, InterVLAN routing enabled.

    I cannot ping a device on VLAN2 from a PC on VLAN1. I can ping the device from the RVL200. What setting am I missing to enable the VLANs to see each other?

    Thanks for your advice.

    The router exhibited some hanky behavior with the DHCP, and inability to change the router IP address. Warm reset and firmware upgrade didn't fix these or the interVLAN anomalies.

    After a full reset (10 seconds on the button), I was successful implementing the interVLAN routing as originally described. Pre-reset, the routing tables looked OK. I think there must have been something in a cache that was messing up the operation.

    Interesting behavior, maybe buggy firmware.

    The box once again spontaneously became brain dead with respect to interVLAN routing. It might be worth noting that the config changes the router IP to a different subnet than the 192.168.1.xxx default. The routing worked fine initially, but later died without any modification to this config.

    Subsequently flashed to, loaded back the config, and the routing immediately failed.

    Reloaded an unmodified config, followed by bare minimum changes for the VLAN, and re-established successful routing.

    Something is real buggy here. Why would routing work for a while, then fail?

    was the config a config or from a previous firmware version. it is never recommended to use configs that come from different versions of firmware. the NVRAM variables in the config may conflict.

    when upgrading firmware I always reset to factory defaults after I have successfully upgraded the firmware.

    I have also noticed the same behaviour when I enable routing between VLAN, it works a while than finally stops routing. This issue should be reported to Linksys if we want to have it fixed. Let's cross the finger that Linksys is still working on improving this firmware router.

    Good point re: config vs firmware version. I do not have an answer as to which config I used.

    It has stopped routing, again. I'll try a factory reset and fresh config...again.

    How does one report this problem? As best as I can tell, there is no support for the Small Business Series routers other than the forums. Cisco directs the user to Linksys; Linksys directs it back to Cisco. A virtual infinite loop :argue:
