"I still could not find a way to access restriction on a per-user basis, so the solution I used in the end is to create 2 equal shares on the samba server: Both point to the same drive directory, but one share works withh and one without a password. Next, I disallowed access to the password-less share to the laptop via ""hosts deny"" in smb.conf.

Now I can access the drive shares without a password on my regular computer and with a password when working on the laptop. Guests don't have the samba password, so they have to stay out."

Setup two virtual LANs on your router. Turn wireless security on for one of the LANs and point your two windows 7 and your linux machine to that LAN, and point the XP machine to the other.
