Randomly disappearing WIFI "hardware"

I got some crazy issues with my Gnome-Manjaro.
The WIFI hardware is randomly NOT recognized by the system. After several (random amount of) reboots it works.
With the parallel Win10 Install it is always recognized.
Anyone knows this issue?

A post was split to a new topic: Disappearing wifi

I’m having the exact same issue so I figured Id post here instead of making a new thread. To describe the issue a little further whenever the system goes into hibernate or is shut off the subsequent boot up shows that the “WIFI Hardware” has been deactivated and the network settings force Airplane Mode. For me personally ive found that just powering down and then bringing back up the system will fix the issue but the issue is still present.

Since it was requested by the ADMIN earlier ill post the information found running
