If you are referring to settings via a URL address of 192.168.n.1 in your Internet Browser's address window, those are configuration settings on your router rather then the PC/Laptop you happend to be on.
Assuming your router configuration settings are done correctly, including changing the default SSID to one of your own choosing, you have a 2nd set of tasks to do, to make your Laptop connect wirelessly.
Have you done this already via Control Panel> Network Connections> Wireless Network Connections> Preferred Networks>?
You say your laptop gets an excellent signal. Is that from your own wireless router? (As shown by your unique SSID?) Or next door's with an identical default SSID as yours was?
