Can you please clarify the process of adding a new Sonos speaker to a WiFi network that has previously been connected to another WiFi network?
If I wished to move one of these speakers back to the original WiFi network, how would this be done?
Can Sonos speakers be configured so that they can be easily moved between different WiFi networks and work seamlessly without having to perform reconfiguration steps each time?

I think in your case perhaps the easiest and quickest method is to simply factory reset the speaker and then simply add it to the new, but existing, Sonos network device using the “Add player or sub” feature in the Sonos Controller App that’s attached to the new WiFi network.
There are several other ways...
You could cable the original speaker on the 2nd network to put it into 'Boost/Wired mode' and then power off/on the new speaker near to that WiFi/SonosNet network signal, ensuring its out of range of the original WiFi network. Not that’s the best method, particularly if the WiFi signals are closeby to each other.
Or you could cable the speaker to the original or new router and go into Advanced Setup/Wireless Setup of the Sonos App and enter the new WiFi credentials for the new network, before powering down the speaker, uncabling it and moving it where you want it to run on your new WiFi.
So there are several ways, but sometimes if you are just shifting the one speaker, I think you may find it quicker just to factory reset it.
