I have set up my home office and I just want to check if there are any mistakes, since I did everything "by heart". I did it for the first time, everything works, but I just want to know are there any "neater" or more less noob of doing this.

So, theres a HDSL box installed, its connected with twin cable to the converter. From converter theres a regular UPT cable going to the MikroTik router, which then branches with utp cables to IP phone, Apple Time Capsule and iMac.

MikroTik is connected to Time Capsules WAN port. Cisco SF100D port 1 is connected to Time Capsules LAN port 1, and Cisco's port 2 goes to PC's network card.

Any mistakes in y setup? Thanks!

Not sure what you are using the time capsule for. I would have the cisco switch connected directly to the router. Then plug the PC and Mac into the switch
