Yes, you need a router. A switch alone will not allow you to share an Internet connection. With just a modem and switch all PCs will be trying to use the same public IP address which is not possible.

A router has a DHCP server will issue private IP address to each computer that will allow the Internet to be shared via Network Address Translation.
