Problem description

I've got a problem with my wi fi signal and devices. It disappears from time to time depending on booting.

Sometimes after running rfkill list all I can find wireless device, sometimes I cannot.

I don't understand how linux may randomly boots with/without wireless connections. Moreover I don't know how to understand if it's hardware or software problem.

Solution that didn't worked for me

nmcli radio wifi on

Additional information
