Whats the correct way to connect a router and switch to the internet?

Hello, my house is not wired for ethernet but im getting ready to set up a wired network to go along with my wireless but I'm kinda stumped when it comes to connecting my wireless router and network switch. I've looked at a bunch of network diagrams and can't figure out which of the following I should do.

Internet > DSL Modem > Wireless Router > Switch > Computers


Internet > DSL Modem > Switch > Wireless Router > Computers

Additionally, should I keep my NAS attached to my wireless router or should it be moved to the switch? I want to maintain the fastest possible access for all devices as it will be used to stream video.
