    I have been trying to fix the issue for a few months now - got a new laptop for Christmas and the problem has been since day 1.

    When booting, WIFI and Bluetooth are greyed out and I cannot use them. I consequently need to restart the computer a few times until it works. It also happens sometimes when booting from sleep.

    The issue happens with BOTH Windows 10 and Linux (Elementary OS).

    I asked Asus (I have a UX310UA) about it and they suggested to delete and reinstall the Wifi adapter's driver from control panel - if it doesn't work, it should be a hardware issue according to Asus Support. I was not aware of Bluetooth having the same problem until recently.
    I don't believe it's a hardware issue and that's why I'm reaching you.

    I also tried to reinstall the driver manually but I don't know if I succeeded though.

    Any help would be wonderful !
