    Technically, you only need wifi to run the jailbreak. HOWEVER, most people won't have the ability/patience to jailbreak and install applications using just iPHUC. Your best bet is to go to a local Starbucks, Blenz, or McDonald, hope that they offer WiFi, and jail break it there. Please note that, however, to be able to make the most use out of your iPod Touch, you WILL need an internet connection and a wifi access point... So if you don't have access to those regularly, you probably should get a cheaper iPod Classic instead.

    to add apps and what not you really should have wifi
    and you need wifi for the internet of course
    not having a wireless router really defeats the point of the touch

    if your laptop has wifi you can preform a network bridge (windows)
    or internet sharing it takes an ethernet connection and shares it in wifi
    (under Sharing in mac)
