No, the Time Capsule can be set up both wirelessly or connected directly to your network via a standard ethernet cable. I have mine set up connected directly to my home network, with a cable.
Think of the Time Capsule as two devices combined, a hard drive with some backup software, and a wireless/wireline modem. Data can reach the hard drive (for backup) either way.
Since I never move my Time Capsule I don't see any reason why not to just plug it directly into my network. This saves wireless bandwidth, and increases the speed of even incremental backups.
