A router acts as a bridge between your computer and the internet, improving security. It usually incorporates a hardware firewall. If you google around you will find a more detailed explanation. "Wireless" routers are installed when you are networking computers together without cabling.

Whether you need one depends on your attitude to security. In my opinion they are worthwhile.

you do not need a router if you are connecting directly to the modem via cable or wifi/bluetooth.
you may need a router if you are setting up a home network.
