Can I wirelessly backup/store files from my Mac on a Time Capsule without connecting it to a router or is it mandatory for this feature?

I want a Time Capsule just to back up the files on my MacBook and use it for extra storage. I do not want to print from it, or back up multiple computers, or anything else. Do I need to connect it to my router just to back up my laptop?

    The time capsule IS the router :) and you can wirelessly backup AND access the internet :)

    no need for pesky wires, just connect to it wirelessly. (For Internet Access, You need to connect an Internet wire from your (DSL/Connection) to it :)
