Installation sequence iMac 2012 / Time Capsule

Today I will receive my new iMac 27". I will also install a TimeCapsule (instead of my old wifi router).

What is the best way to install both:

1. First install iMac with current router, afterwards install TimeCapsule

2. First install TimeCapsule with current Windows PC, afterwards install iMac

3. Install both at the same time

Does anybody has some experience with this?

Thanks for your help!

It really doesn't matter in the slightest which order you do it in.

Yes, we have two iPhones and an iPad. I was not aware that I could setup the Time Capsule with an iPhone! Great, I will do this then first.

Thanks for your help.
