My Playbar is connected to the cabled LAN but loves to connect to the wireless network. Is there a way to enforce it to use LAN instead of WLAN?

If you wire any Sonos component your setup changes from Standard Mode (your home WiFi) to Sonos Net (the Sonos WiFi mesh) so you have to pick one or the other.

Remove the WiFi password from your Sonos system by performing the following steps:

Sonos app for iOS or Android: From the More menu, tap Settings > Advanced Settings > Wireless Setup. On the Wireless Setup screen, click the button that says "Reset". Then click "Done" on the next screen.
Sonos Controller App for Mac: Click Sonos > Preferences > Advanced > Wireless Setup. On the Wireless Setup screen, click the button that says "Reset". Then click "Done" on the next screen.
Sonos Controller App for PC: Click Manage > Settings > Advanced > Wireless Setup. On the Wireless Setup screen, click the button that says "Reset". Then click "Done" on the next screen.
I have several Play:5, Play:3, Play:1 and a subwoofer which should stay connected to the wifi. I just want to force the Playbar to the LAN
