NVR490 Wifi Station Mode - doesnt work with Orbi

I’ve got an Orbi mesh network that is supposed to create a single network from its three bases. It works well for everything except my Swann system!

When setting up station mode, the Swann sees three SSIDs with the same name (each individual Orbi base). When selecting one, it will try to link all four cameras to the same base and bypass a closer one. This means the furthest camera is basically unuseable, even though it has an Orbi base right next to it.

If the system isn’t going to play ball with Orbi, is there a way to someone connect the cameras to different SSIDs? I suspect if the cameras are connected to the right bases, the system may still work properly.
