New Around Here
I'm having network problems here at my video production company.
We have a modem with internet of 500 Mpbs download and 250 Mpbs upload.
On a daily basis, we are 15 people connected to the Ubiquiti wifi network + 4 people via cable
Here's my setup:

Modem+Router -> switcher (connected to 10 cameras + Unfi Cloud Key + TpLink 8-port switcher)

This TpLink switcher connects the QNAP TS 264 + 4 wired computers, all with Cat6.

When the 4 computers are connected to the NAS, the internet starts to "overload" and the internet connection becomes very bad, no Google opens.

What do you believe it could be? How can I resolve this?
Welcome to the forums @onerbbbb.

Transferring huge files between a PC and a NAS will do that. Particularly if it is x4 PCs...

The PCs are transferring files, correct? Not just 'connected', as you state above?

Is the 'switcher' a Switch?

Is the NAS capable of greater than 1GbE connections? Is the Switch similarly capable?

For a video production company, I would imagine a 10GbE LAN network to be the minimum.

Please provide a diagram of how all the equipment is connected/configured. There may be a way to fix this with your existing equipment, even if you don't have 10GbE hardware.

All else you'd mentioned aside, your declared Internet connection is suspiciously lacking as a starting point. You've got "more-professional" hardware than most folks here. Have you yet consulted a local networking professional about this matter?
