In a internal network was working just fine I did format a laptop, and when I want to connect to another computer in the network from that laptop, I get an error Laptop Server Server Router 
ping -c 2
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=8.93 ms
From icmp_seq=2 Redirect Host(New nexthop:
--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 1 received, +1 errors, 50% packet loss, time 1002ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 3.701/3.701/3.701/0.000 ms

If I connect to the server which it works as a router and from there connects to, it works. What could be the problem?

    Just want to note that although "New nexthop:" is showing an inverted address, I think that's actually a bug in 'ping' itself and not something weird with OP's network specifically – I get the same whenever ICMP Redirects are involved.

    Indeed the inverted IP address is just a bug in ping. It has been resolved recently.
