Asus X450CC Wifi Hard Block Unfixable
The wifi for the Asus X450cc is unfixable. Wifi worked once then was continually hard blocked. Ubuntu was dual booted to Windows 10. Changing wifi driver does not work. Workarounds found on ubuntuforums does not work. Blacklisting asus_nb_wmi does not work. Error is not limited to ubuntu but also to other distros so problem is probably in kernel. No other alternative was found to solve this problem.
