    I was wondering if there is an easy (and logical) way of assigning network permissions for my home setup.

    5 Users
    3 PCs / Laptops - all running Windows 7 Home Premium and all connected to the same network.
    1 NAS (QNAP TS419)

    The 2 laptops connect wireless to the modem router.
    The PC / Printer are wired to a Gig switch which in turn is connected to the modem router.

    User accounts are set up on each on the PCs / laptops, all commonly named, for example:
    Laptop 1 - laptop1name/user1name, laptop1name/user2name and so on.
    Laptop 2 - laptop2name/user1name, laptop2name/user2name etc.....

    I've set up folders on the NAS for each of the users, also named as per the username.

    Is there a quick and easy solution to assign permissions or do I have to go to each user folder and set write permissions for that user from each PC / laptop they could access the NAS from.
