OMGOMGOMG...I just got it to work! Thank you so much!
So for posterity I'll put my exact steps so this might be useful for others.
Start by creating a directory where you want to mount the drive:
Then install smbfs:
Now determine "where" this network is located. This was the difficult part (for me). I was trying to find a hard drive connected directly to a Cisco router. I was able to go into the admin panel of the router and find the disk information under the "Storage" tab. Look for the "Display Name" for the "Shared Folder" of the device you are wanting to mount. You should also notice an IP associated with the drive (this is what I was missing).
sudo apt-get install smbfs
Now connect that information to create an entry for your fstab file. Enter the following into the fstab with sudo permissions.
Now mount it.
//ip_associated_with_the_drive/display_name_found_in_router_admin_panel /path_to_where/you_want_to_mount/your_drive smbfs your_username 0 0
I was able to do a simple ls command to see everything I wanted.
ls -l /path_to_where/you_want_to_mount/your_drive
