My parents live across the street and have internet service. I do not.(cheap) I need a router that will go about 1/4 mile and through cement block walls. Do I attach the router to their computer or to my laptop? Do I need an amplifier or just a good extended range router? Recommendations?

The router should be on the parents side of the street.
You'll need a heck of a setup at the laptop end, too.
Look up this::

You need to line it up real good to work, but it drastically extends the range of wireless stuff.

actually if their across the street you wont have to go that extreme you might just need a wireless dongle to do the trick

Scott is down the road. He also said 1/4 mile. This is a pretty ambitious distance for a wireless router.
I had trouble getting one of those dongle 'n' things to work and the linear distance was about 25 feet.
