My Wifi won't turn on and neither my Hotspot on my Asus ROG 5s

Star I

1.Model Name: Asus ROG 5s

2. Firmware Version: 31.0810.1226.146

3. Not rooted

My Wifi won't turn on and neither my Hotspot.

It started around 4-5 days ago.

Suddenly my Wifi won't turn and when I tried switching on the Hotspot it showed Error below it. The Wifi sometimes worked after I restarted the device while plugged in with the Charger but for a shorter duration like about 5-10 minutes and after that the device suddenly restarted itself and the Wifi was gone again. I tried factory reset also, the Wifi worked for sometime but again the problem started after 10 minutes or something.

I have watched some videos that told it's the manufacturing defect and that it's motherboard needs to be replaced. I have the warranty but my phone had undergone water damage and still survived. But I still need the new motherboard which I checked with them the last time when my phone was water damaged and they said it would be around ₹40,000 and the display will be around ₹16,000 which shocked me so hard.

I just need the motherboard though but it's undergone water damage. I am just a student I don't have this much to spend on it which makes the phone twice pricer. Please help me I would rather have it fixed free since it's under warranty.
