Zenfone 8 hotspot not working after Android 13 update

Star I

I installed the pushed update for Android 13 on my Zenfone 8, and after that my WiFi hotspot stopped working. The option is no longer under its typical location in Settings > Network & Internet, it must be searched for or accessed via shortcut. I have tried changing all Hotspot settings, factory reset the phone, and I even contacted my wireless provider to confirm service is active for my account. I have read that downgrading to Android 12 enables WiFi functionality again, but I'd like to know how ASUS will address the issue.

I have the same problem. Upgrading to A13 made Hotspot dysfunctional. Downgrading to A12 makes Hotspot work again.

Same issue. Pls help ASUS. I USED hours of hotspot before upgrading and was perfect, now the toggle button doesn't turn it on. Tried restart and messing with setting and third party apps, nothing works

better take it to the nearest service center
I also just experienced the same thing and it turned out that the motherboard of my cellphone was damaged because of upgrading to android 13. if it is still within the warranty period, the cellphone machine will be replaced for free.
