In my case it was that the AP in location B was visible in the list of
all APs after scan, but when I tried to configure it (i.e. put its
credentials) I could not see it in the list of the APs to configure
credentials, maybe due to the length of the list.

Me too, with same result: adding a 2nd WLAN config does not let you do
anything with this.

Thanks for your feedback in any case.
