You need to either password protect your shared folders or give them a more secure WiFi network to connect to with no LAN access. Many routers have such a capabilityi.

Most routers have an option in the wireless settings to "isolate" the wifi from other LAN ports. Probably more secure to have network shares only available on wired LAN anyway, but at least you should be able to use the groups policy to allocate static IPs to the specific computers in the secure group (eg 192.168.1.2). You would create a second group with a separate IP range for the insecure group (eg 192.168.2.2) and the router would only allocate unknown users into the insecure group. The routers local address would be the x.x.x.1 address in each IP range or subnet.
