I have a playbar, 2 x play 1's and a connect/ turntable set up in my house which works fine. I have recently built a gym at the bottom of the garden and would like to set up a new Play 1 but I'm getting nowhere. The gym has it's own router which is hardwired to the house broadband via an underground Ethernet cable. It therefore runs off the same TalkTalk connection but via a different router so I have one network in the house and a separate one in the gym.
I first tried to set up the Play 1 in the gym but it wouldn't get past the pressing the play/ volume up buttons together. The light flashes green and then after pressing goes orange and nothing happened. I then resorted to connecting it to the house network but when I plug it back into the gym it is lost from the rooms on my sonos controller. What is confusing me is that whilst in the gym (and connected to the gym wifi) I can still control the Sonos in the house (which are connected to the house network). If this is possible, I don't understand why the new speaker is not being recognised in the gym.
I've tried plugging the new speaker via Ethernet into the gym router but it's not finding the network. I don't need the gym speaker to be part of the house set up, but I can't see how to set up a new system without deleting the old one. Can anybody provide me with any info on what I'm doing wrong and how I can resolve the problem?

It has an access point mode. See https://static.tp-link.com/1910012221_TL-WR841N(EU)(US)_V13_UG.pdf, page 11.
I would hard reset it (the button on the back), and set it up afresh as an AP.
