the Internet connection is shared.
eth2 goes in a Access point and then to the laptop with the following settings
DNS1 217.10.240.ZZZ
DNS2 217.10.240.TTT

This morning I had internet. Then I went to the university with the laptop and when I got at home, there is only local connection. And I can't find the problem.

Turn off your wireless on the laptop. Can you open shares on the desktop? Can you ping from the laptop?

I use the router as a AP, and when I put it on wireless the connection is local only. I unplug the cable from eth2, from the router and plug it in the laptop and everything works just fine. :) help me :)

The problem was in this cloned WiFi connection. It must be closed. For those of you who found their problem in this topic the solution is:
1. Open network and sharing center
2. on the cloned connection click "Custumize", then somewhere there is an option Merge or delete connection. And then click on merge and merge it with the first active connection, which is the primary one.

Oh I forgot to tell you that you need to restart in order for the changes to take effect, or else no matter how mutch you reconnect there will be no internet. :)
