Arduino Xbee's only communicate with another Xbee connected to your computer?

I guess I just haven't looked into this very far, but I thought Xbee's could communicate with a wireless router.  So basically, for an xbee to communicate with the cloud my computer needs to be on with another xbee plugged into it?  And if I want constant communication, my computer needs to be on 24/7?

You need a bridge, or gateway.
