    I hope this is the right forum.

    I'm helping a friend with setting up his home network. He has two desktop
    PC's; one running Vista the other running Windows 7. Had a bit of
    difficulty getting the windows 7 PC accessing shared folders on Vista PC
    (but not the other way) but this has been resolved. I'm left now with one
    issue and that relates to the Network Attached Storage (NAS) device that has
    been connected to his router. What is required is a way to prevent or
    block access to this drive from his daughters laptop which is running
    Windows 7. He wants her to have internet access of course but not be able
    to access his to desktop PC's or NAS drive. Her laptop is in a different
    workgroup to his desktops which takes care of desktop PC access. How does
    one go about preventing access to the NAS drive ??
