I'm 15 and I buy stuff online all the time....of course I have to earn the money but hey thats life. Its pretty easy just google stuff and use your common sense to tell if the site is bogus or not. I use Tigerdirect and new egg for all that crap though, of course theres always local hardware stores as well.

I'm just saying in general access to stuff of the sort isn't that hard if you really think about it. Oh and you can boost a signal with hardware store supplys, of course you might prefere a repeater.
