Usualy small home routers are managed using a web interface, so there is not need for a special software. I say "usualy" because you did not specify the brand and model of your router, so I am assuming that you router behaves like the others.

First, you will need to find the IP address of your router. In order to do that, in Windows XP, click Start > Run and type "cmd". On the command line, type "ipconfig". Look at the "Default gateway" line, this should be the IP address for your router.

Then open a web browser such as Internet Explorer and type that IP address in the address bar. The web interface should open. It may ask you for a username and password. The username is usualy "admin" but the default password may differ from one manufacturer to another. Try leaving the password field empty. If it does not work try "admin" also as the password.
If it still does not work, having the brand and model of your router will be necessary to find the default password.

Everything should be explained in more details in the user manual of your router, if you still have it. It you don't, it may usualy be downloaded from the manufacturer support web site.

Historically, how long should this dryer last? We purchased our home (dryer included) 20 years ago.

Depends on the dryer and the usage.. I know that dose not help. Dryers especially the old ones are very simple appliances. If you are having problems you can purchase a repair manual at almost any appliance parts house. In 40 years I have never owned a new dryer...

How can I use my airlink 101 router to work with my ps3? my router is lock so I can't access the wireless on my ps3

If you're wireless network is secured you will need the network key to attach your PS3 to the network. If you cannot access the router's configuration page via a web browser because you have forgotten the password, you can reset the router back to factory settings by holding in the recessed button on the rear of the router for about 30 seconds. I would check with anyone else in the household before resetting the router, as they will no longer be able to connect to the wireless network once you've reset.

I cannot connect a new lap top to our wireless router

There's no special settings actually in adding another notebook to your wireless network. You can add up to 32 wireless clients on your wireless network. You will see a wireless network icon at the system tray by the clock, just click that and you will see the list of available networks. Choose your network and click connect. That should do it.
