Wi-Fi and Hotspot won't turn on after Android 13 update

Star I
  1. Model Name: ROG Phone 5
  2. Firmware Version: WW-33.0210.0210.200
  3. Rooted or not: NO
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: CONSTANT

    My phone was working fine for a few days after updating it auto updated to Android 13 but Last night, my phone decided to freeze for a few seconds and worked again as if nothing happened. But the only problem was the Wi-Fi suddenly turned off (I was connected to the Wi-Fi prior to the few seconds freeze). I looked it up online and found similar problems after people tried to update their phone from Android 12 to Android 13.
    I tried troubleshooting it by powering it off, force reboot, resetting the network settings, restoring to factory settings, and as well as downgrading back to Android 12. I really do NOT want to go the service center as my phone is already past the warranty period and this only happened AFTER I updated to Android 13.

    I tried everything I can think of but the Wi-Fi and hotspot are still dead. And my phone is already past the warranty period. Any other fix?

lots of people have the same issue, including me. from my experience the only solution is to fully switch out the motherboard, but my suggestion is to just buy a phone from a different brand 👍

Yeah, I'm seriously considering switching to a different brand after this issue. I'm willing to wait at least 2 months for a firmware update that will hopefully fix this issue. 

Also some other stuffs I tried (that clearly didn't fix the issue):
1.) I tried booting my phone in safemode
2.) I also tried emptying my phone battery before charging and booting it up again.

Same issue, the phone suddenly restarted and WiFi stopped working.

Same here... Going through my MB fast. Is going to be one hell of a bill since this is also my work phone.
