You shouldn't have to, no.

Basically, think of it as a splitter ... the cable or DSL signal comes into your house, you plug it into your PC. OR you plug it into the back of your router/wireless access point, which typically gives you four or so ethernet ports in the back, so now you can plug in three more computers if they're reasonably near by, PLUS it broadcasts a wireless signal that other computers can latch onto over the air.
