    Router is N66U

    Q1: how do I hide the entware flash drive from showing up in Samba shares on the network? i have drives connected to both usb ports on the router. one for entware+transmission and another for storage. Storage drive shows up fine, but i don't need to use the entware on the network. is there a way to hide this drive from the network?

    Q2: whenever I reboot the router and look at transmission's webgui, files show an error message saying "no data found, ensure your drives are connected", but when I hit the start button torrents go back online no problem.

    i followed this guide to install transmission: https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki/Installing-Transmission-through-Entware

    but , then i've also read people talk about jffs, scripts, post usb mounts, etc. and that stuff just goes over my head.

    help appreciated
