I have a system that consists of an ARC + Sub + AMP surrounds.
In order to reduce the amount of competition/traffic on my WiFi I am looking to move these devices over to Ethernet. The first device with the necessary wiring is the AMP. Once I Disable WiFi, the music will not play thru them. They show up as part of the system. Under “About My System” I can see that it is getting an IP Address. It is part of the default VLAN and I can ping it from other devices on the same network.
If I re-enable WiFi, they work fine as Surrounds.

Hi. You have disabled all wireless capability on the Arc when you 'disabled WiFi', making it impossible for the Arc to communicate with the Amp in the way required.
The Arc communicates with the Amp using direct routing over 5GHz.
If you wire the Amp as well then it will probably work, but not as designed.
