Have you considered using a Powerline adaptor or wifi repeater instead of running cables through the house?
rather odd as it supports iTunes wirelessly but not wired

Pinnacle branded SoundBridges do not support iTunes at all; this is because Pinnacle never licensed the protocol from Apple.
To connect a Pinnacle device to your iTunes library you have to use Firefly. Unfortunately this software doesn't work on newer versions of OS X so it might not be a solution for your issue.
You might consider running a UPnP-AV/DLNA server on your Mac, for example Serviio, Plex, Elgato EyeConnect, Logitech Media Server or Twonky Server. Many of these are capable of serving your iTunes library to theSoundBridges.

So there must be a problem with your router not transmitting RSP packets over the wired Ethernet - possibly just a setting somewhere. Since the Pinnacle isn't licensed for daap, it relies solely on RSP.
