I am trying to set up a home network and I have very limited knowledge. If someone can point me to a course or video or website (even if it is paid content) that can help me. The little bit I knew about Homegroup is irrelevant seeing it is no longer available.

I have 3 desktops that is on the network and a NAS and WD MyCloud Home. I am using a Uqiquiti AmplifiHD mesh network with the network storage connected via cable and one pc is cable whereas the other two is wifi. I would like to set it up that all pc's have access to the network storage. I suspect windows credentials might be a problem, but not sure. I can't seem to hit the nail when using Google to get something that actually works. I have a separate laptop that I use in some instances and it connects to everything as well, but I am also logged into it with my microsoft account. Also to mention the other two desktops is for my kids and I don't use a microsoft account to log into their pc's, is there a downside in using it or should I just go ahead and use the microsoft accounts for them. I didn't do it just because I wasn't sure if it will collect information from them unknowingly.

Any suggestion welcome

It might be worth checking out CrossTalkSolutions.com or Crosstalk Solutions' Youtube channel. He covers everything Ubiquiti and more. Also has configuration guides.
