Many of Asus routers run a version of linux. Since the drive is attached to the router's samba process it is busy thus the need for the -l option.

Once the drive was unmounted it may not be shared anymore so you might need to restart the service on the web page or reboot the router.

Good catch. I tested that out. The results were erratic and therefore unreliable. On my files(Nemo) in the left hand panel there is an icon to access "sda1". After re-mounting "sda1" on the router, the ability to access "sda1"(on my computer) is not restored. However, I can drill down to "sda1" by going to the Network icon, then to the Windows Network Folder, then to House, then to the RT-AC3100-84E8 folder, which finally shows "sda1". Unfortunately, it seems that actually being able to access "sda1" is hit or miss. (Also seems that the mount point (occasionally?) in "/media" seems to disappear. Rebooting my computer resolves those issues. Not a very satisfactory solution. But then in terms of the original intent of this thread, unounting "sda1" in the router would never be occurring as any such bash program would simply be testing for "sda1" being mounted. Thank-you for your advice.
