How to use inter VLAN on a D-Link DSR-250N?

I have a D-Link DSR-250N and configured VLAN1, VLAN2 and VLAN3.
VLAN 1 and VLAN2 are configured with each their DHCP ( and
Inter-VLAN Routing is switched OFF so VLAN1 can't see any device of VLAN2 and visa verce.
Now I would like to add a third VLAN with devices that I would like to use in both VLAN's 1 and 2.
I used the Inter VLAN Routing option in VLAN 3, but you need to switch it on also on VLAN 1 and 2, and then VLAN 1 and 2 will be visible for each other.
I tried configuring the Ports in stead of Access to General with member to VLAN1, 2 and 3, but I'am not able to ping.
Do I need to make a route or is there an easy option that I need to use?

Have you enabled inter vlan route option on all vlan's?

can you paste the output of VLAN settings-->Port settings page

I enabled the Inter VLAN-Routing only for VLAN3
As I don't want VLAN1 going to VLAN2

And on port 6 is the device that I would like to use on both VLAN's
(I don't know if I need to use is as General or Access Port)

I used 3 PC's to test with it on port 1, 3 and 5. And pinging to the devices.
When I enable inter VLAN on all VLAN's I can ping the devices, but on all VLAN's

Port 7 and 8 are connected to other switches with VLAN1 and 2 on it.

If you want to ping between all VLANs, then inter vlan route should be enabled on all vlan's; else you cant ping to that particular vlan.

Even if you set the port to be general/trunk, still inter vlan route option should be enabled to between vlans

OK, thanks.
But how do I block the VLAN1 devices with VLAN2 then?
tomvanKerckhoveAuthor Commented:
Is it correct to enable all Inter VLAN Routing and use the Firewall Rules and block anything from VLAN1 to VLAN2.
And a second rule to block anything from VLAN2 to VLAN1
NetExpert Network Solutions Pte LtdTechnical SpecialistCommented:
I have gone thru the manual and I dont there is an option to block between LAN' network.

The traffic can be permit of deny between zones . ie. From LAN to WAN or LAN to DMZ  and WAN to LAN vice versa

I have attached the manual for your reference
tomvanKerckhoveAuthor Commented:
Yes I can also select the VLAN's so now I have blocked VLAN1 to VLAN2 and blocked VLAN2 to VLAN1 in a second rule and it works.
