I can only confirm the previous message, there has not been any update that damages the wifi, it is even likely that you would have lost the wifi after shutting down and restarting the phone without updating.

On the other hand, I agree with you, this update is botched, neither done nor to be done.
For my part, I still have the same bugs, for example it is impossible for me to plan to spend a weekend away from home without the Asus charger, the charge function QC4 or QC4 + indicates a charge but does not charge. Fortunately, USB charging from a PC port still works.
The untimely reboot suffered by some users is still present
A big question therefore on this forced update.

Hi siam_phaipi , 
Apology for the experience. For now, request you to please visit the service center. Please share the RMA via PM if you have any issues during service or any issues confirm via PM as well.

The update doesn't screw the phone... The damage was before the update. Your chip likely burned before but the necessary drivers are loaded during the boot process.

An update/restart will of course reload those drivers but since the place where this is stored is damaged - it can't load it thus no WiFi.

The update doesn't "damage" your WiFi directly..

That actually makes sense...let me try to self diagnose and see how to load the required drivers
