RV130W Inter-VLAN Routing occurs even when disabled

On my RV130W I have two VLANs set up:



Inter-VLAN Routing is NOT enabled:

Why then am I able to ping hosts in a different VLAN?

Does this require a bug fix?

just a thought to see if its

just a thought to see if its a feature or a bug

I wonder if the feature is only related to vlan's other than vlan 1

If you create vlan 200 -

can a client on vlan 100 ping a client on vlan 200 and vice versa

I put my theory to the test

I put my theory to the test and it worked as I thought

which is that vlan 101 could get to vlan 102 and vice versa

but vlan 1 could get to either and vice versa

I take it that this is probably due to how the router os is setup and hardware options on it

based on that there is probably only a couple of real interfaces

and that the vlan 1 is assigned to the one of them or to the switch interface

and the other vlans are just attached to it, 

vlan 1 has to be able to cross communicate due to my guess that there aren't enough real interfaces

in that vlan is the end gateway and the other vlans are just virtual gateways if you will


This is what I did with the ports

In my lab I actually don't assign vlan 1 to any ports at all, nothing is on it except that actual router

but I left it on a port for you to see, as it might be handy to connect to in worst case scenarios



which works because of routing


as to whether its a feature or a bug or a limitation is hard to say without more info from cisco
