How to Set Up Synology in the way i want. For instance; My model 1621s+
I want to connect an Ethernet cable from my router to my Synology, and then I would like to take another Ethernet cable and connect it to my PC from that Synology NAS to continue sharing the internet. In simple words: Home Router -> Synology NAS-> to PC in order to have both internet and direct connection between my PC and NAS.
How to use NAS to get the Internet to my PC with using an additional switch?
Looking for a NAS to use at home to stream content to 1-2 MacBook Pros, 1-2 iPhones, and/or a 4K TV (LG). Would likely only have 1-2 streams at a time. Content ranges from 720 to 4K. Will also use the NAS as wireless backup via Time Machine for the two MacBook Pros. Knowing that I'll be using hardware transcoding (plan to subscribe to Plex Pass), I want to find a NAS that allows me to use an M.2 NVME SSD as a storage volume with PCIe Gen 3 capability (either with an expansion card or natively with slots), with the idea that I'd run Plex on that NVME volume and use it as a transcoding directory as well. QNAP allows M.2 volumes to be used as storage, so this should work on a QNAP device that has the right hardware. A few questions:
1. Is this overkill for my use case?
2. If it is overkill, which NAS from either QNAP or Synology would be best for the transcoding use case without the M.2 NVMEs as storage volumes?
3. If it is not overkill, which QNAP devices with PCI Gen 3 M.2 slots would work for the transcoding use case?
4. Can an iPhone or MacBook Pro direct-stream 4K content from a NAS?
