    I have a bunch of people on my network, and some shared folders.
    I want to prevent certain users from making changes to the folders, but I want to be able to make changes from wireless connection.
    So, how can I make it so I can make changes wirelessly but others cannot?
    Basically right now, my permissions are set for
    Everyone read/write
    Guest read/write
    But when I try to add a "network path to share with" like specific stations IE;
    \\Computername\Windowsname
    It doesn't work.
    Can anyone advise on how I can prevent certain wireless users from modifying shared directories while granting others the ability? Specifically, certain wireless stations?
    Any additional information would be invaluable.

    Windows doesn't differentiate security and permissions based on connection type, so you can't prevent access via a wireless network connection. Is the network a domain or a workgroup? Are the "bunch of people" using different computers or different accounts on that one computer?

    there are about 6 different laptops / pcs on a wireless network.

    I wasn't trying to differentiate between "connection type" but moreso "wireless station"

    any suggestions?
