Move on wrong wifi network

I accidentally set my Move speaker up on my guest Wi-Fi, but my Sonos system is on my private home Wi-Fi. Now the app won’t find the Move and I can’t figure out how to change it to the correct Wi-Fi network. Ideas? Thank you.

Probably easiest to just factory reset it, and just set it up again with the correct SSID and password.

Thank you. I tried that and it worked. 

Is that really the only or best way?! I was hoping to be able to move the Move from place to place and use a guest wifi with some ease. A sample use case is going away for the weekend to a B&B or hotel and wanting to use the local wifi and not BT and then be able to move the Move back to my home Sonos system after the weekend. All without multiple factory resets. This solution seems extreme.

It was the best solution for the use case presented.  You are presenting an entirely different scenario.

The Move can connect to more than one wifi network without resetting

The purpose of many ‘guest’ networks is to allow browsing and emails but nothing more.  But that is not a Move issue.
