New router to extend wifi range, can't find sonos system

I have my sonos products connected through a router that is covering about 3/4th of my apartment. I decided to buy an extra router to extend the range throughout the apartment, however, when connected to the new router I can't access the sonos controller since it can't find the system. In short, how do fix so that I can use the sonos controller when I am connected to the new router as well as when I am connected to the original router?

- TP-Link router is providing internet for the sonos system and also wired connections to all the rooms.
- The newly added Asus router is connected to the TP-Link router through wired connection.

Hope this makes sense... I consider myself as a big newbie when it comes to networks and wifi etc...

Thank you!

Running two routers has split your network into two subnets. You need to configure the second router as an access point on the same network, instead of a router.
