Nest Cam Battery

I need to add my next cam to my wifi extender. I can’t do it through Nest because it just tells me to go to Google Home. Even if my phone is connected to the extender the setup process automatically connects the camera to the other network. The signal is too weak on that one to get video through. Is there a way to manually select the network during setup?

Brad, the answer is no at this point. The bottom line is that there is no way to connect my camera to a wifi repeater unless it is using the exact same SSID as the primary. I had specific reasons to have mine with a _2.4 or _5 appendix. BL I had to change my SSID on the 2.4 band with no apparent workarounds to use a different one.
