How do I access an external hard drive attached to an Airport Extreme using the Finder's "Go to the folder" feature?

 

I have an external hard drive attached to my Airport Extreme and I can access it just fine through Finder.  I would like to be able to keyboard navigate to it in an efficient manner.  I tried to use the "Go to the folder" feature but was unable to.

I had tried dragging the drive to the Network folder but the shortcut it created does not lead to the drive's contents...it seems to lead right back to the parent directory:

I hope I explained the question well.  Thank you for all of your help and time in tending to my inquiry.
