Screenshot: Internet connectivity with wlan1 but no sign of connectivity in wifimgr
Please: is support for multiple interfaces out of scope?
The attached screenshot shows wlan1 in use – after
service netif stop wlan0
– but the connectivity is not shown when wifimgr is run.

wifimgr showing all networks
wlan1 is connected to SSID 'piano' but there's no sign of connectivity in wifimgr.
wifimgr looks for the first interface configured in /etc/rc.conf as either:
ifconfig_XYZN="... WPA ..."
wpa_supplicant_flags="... -i XYZN ..."
If you re-order your config in /etc/rc.conf so that your desired interface is first, wifimgr will work on that interface.
As for your actual question - supporting multiple interfaces - this would require some reworking of the code which currently only handles one interface. I can put that on a todo list, but it isn't something that I anticipate doing soon.

I guess, I can:
A development version 1.17.2 with, among other things, has initial support for multiple wifi interfaces, has been made available to the OP for testing and feedback.
No feedback has yet been received from the OP.
The current development version, wifimgr-1.17.7, is available for download from the project web site:
Since adding support for multiple WiFi interfaces involved a major recode of the configuration parser for detecting the wlanN interfaces and the code that finds aggregate interfaces (e.g., laggN interfaces that use wlanN) as well as changes to many of wifimgr's functions that handle these interfaces, we are requesting feedback that nothing got broken before publishing a FreeBSD port update.
Anyone wishing to test the development version is requested to download it from the project web site. Please then send feedback. Thanks.

My apologies; I have been busy with what might be a permanent move of my boot disk from one notebook to another (with some complications) ...
