    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!

    In an ethereal plane of existence.
    It really doesn't matter in the slightest which order you do it in.

    do you have iphone or ipad?
    you can setup time capsule with one of those as well.

    again no order necessary. but less setup if you do it now then when iMac arrives youre ready to connect to the internet and setup time machine!

    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.
