Try this:
settings

Network and Internet
Click the "WiFi" on the left column.
Scroll down and select "Change Advanced sharing options" (They are close to the bottom)

There you can change to public or back, or select Private, as you wish

But it gives you a quick access to the sharing modes.

NAS is most certainly not my field, but would those you wish to share with not be on Wireless

I have no idea if this is relevant::
I found, after a recent update, that, whilst I could use my printers across three computers, I could not actually see the other two computers.
I right clicked my Windows 10 partition, and selected "give access to" then "Advanced sharing", then "advanced sharing" again, in the next window. I ticked of the obvious item," share this folder", and I was back in business.
On one of the other laptops I had to renew my credentials, before the action too k place.

If your network was normal, you could do what Grizzly shows. if you can't, you need to check the IP addresses the system is uses. It needs to show an address consistent with your network and not some 169 number.

The NAS may be reachable by using it network path, like \\NasName\user
