Iím thinking to set up a shared network of about 3 laptops with a Synology NAS. Files on the NAS will be shared among these 3 laptops only.

However, there will be no internet access for this network, the NAS and laptops will be connected to a router.

Is the NAS able to work without internet access?
Yes, the NAS can work without Internet access and just be your file server. You can mount the shared folder as a network drive on the laptops for the 3 laptop users to share files between. You can allocate individual folders to them too, for files not to be shared with the other 2.

But for future DSM & package updates, you'll have to download to the laptops elsewhere first then update the NAS that way.
