Why can't you just run the NAS through your router?

Whats your network diagram. A switch won't affect how you use a IP.

 

Just leave the nas connected to your router or switch, no reason to plug it directly to your pc.

It’s really just the speed I’m getting if it’s directly connected to my pc i get full gigabit speed but when it’s plug into my router I get 11MB/s

Is your router 100 megabit/second and not gigabit?

Then you have a 100mbit link somewhere, Id fix that and that should be cheap too.

Is your pc hard wired into the router?

1: it’s is 100Mb/s

2:how

3:Yes and that’s how I’m currently set but sometimes I just plug my nas into my pc via Ethernet

Tell us what switch and router you have, for starters. Are both the router and switch 100 megabit or just the router?

The router is a old netgear and the switch is a gigabit speed

You can use a switch to speed this up.

 

But if you have a 100mbit only router, you probably want to replace that soon.

Connect both the nas, router, and your pc to the switch. Problem solved plain and simple. The NAS and PC will communicate  through the switch at gigabit speeds and the pc will connect to the router to send outside traffic.

Ok so all I did was that I plugged my nas into my switch into the port where internet would go but since I can’t get internet where I live I used that port then I plugged my pc and the router into the switch and with the current up addresses I had before having this idea worked

Just make sure you have the switch plugged into a LAN port on the router, not the WAN port. It does't matter what ports you use on the switch though.

Actually I plugged my nas into my switch in the first port and then the router and then my pc and it’s working fine I can even access my router from my pc somehow
