Wifi and Bluetooth Not Working after Update to Fedora 38

I just upgraded to Fedora 38 via software manager and Wifi and Bluetooth have stopped working. Wifi is not connecting and bluetooth does not even appear in the menu.
I am using an ASUS ROG strix G513RC_G513RC 1.0.
Wifi Adapter is MT7922 802.11ax PCI Express (Media Tek).
Till today, I was using Fedora 37 and all was fine. Wifi and bluetooth are working on Windows. I have dual boot with windows 11.
I am relatively new to linux and this is a system I use for my office. Request your urgent help. Thanks.

Please post the output of inxi -Fzxx and rfkill.

In my opinion, we should not answer to people writing like this. This is not a paid support hotline.

I agree that that those who are rude and demanding may not really deserve assistance on an open forum. However we try to be excellent to everyone so … … …

Sorry friends, if the post appears rude / demanding. This is the first time I am writing on a forum, so not really sure with choice of words. I was kind of desperate as previously there were no issues and suddenly all stopped working.
I apologize again and thank you for the time you gave.


Only the noted sentence seemed a bit off in my opinion. The rest is quite fine and we just needed more info to even begin analyzing the problem.

We need a bit more to identify the issue. Please post the output of lspci.

Dear @computersavvy ,
I will keep that mind in making comments. I really appreciate your help.
In the meantime, the problem was resolved.

  1. Tried installing stable kernel version 6.1 → Did not help
  2. Disable fast boot mode → did not work for a couple of hours, even after reboots and others.
    The system was switched off for a couple of hours and then it starts working. Not sure why.

Aside, could you please suggest something more stable that is hardware friendly. I like fedora for personal use, just want something more dependable for office…something like centos, opensuse… Thanks

Network hardware is designed to preserve some state in low power mode to support “magic packet” wakeup. It is possible that more time than a simple reboot is needed to insure that previous (invalid) state is wiped. Windows fast boot is actually a low-power hibernation mode,
which is why it often has bad effects on linux.

Many of the problems people encounter using linux are due to hardware vendors that make Windows a priority and linux support an afterthought. Linux drivers vendors provided for older hardware may not work with recent kernels while there are often delays providing fully functional linux drivers for new hardware. There is no “hardware friendly” linux distro, only linux-friendly hardware. If you need the benefits of new hardware (warranty, support) there are vendors offering systems with linux preinstalled. You may be stuck with the distro chosen by the vendor to avoid losing vendor support, and until drivers become available from other distros.
