Default asus ux510uw wi-fi disabled by hardware

I I bought an Asus zenbook ux510uwk motherboard, all works fine except the wi-fi,
there is a red X . (is very frustrating resend it to china)
I have tried:
1 - I don't see any wi-fi enable button, all fn+button works (light, etc)
2 - two different windows 10 version
3 - no driver issue
4 - 3 different wi-fi adapter
5 - on bios, wi-fi is unlock
6 - bios dump
7 - fn+f2 (all network disabled) works
If I use automatic throubleshoot -> wi-fi is disabled by hardware
Any suggest

Just to consider all option, the pic show the three card I tried. The intel 7265 is the card I supposed original.

8260NGW and AC7265 are the original intel cards. Does LAN work ok,are you getting a MAC address.

EDIT: The UW model has an AC7265 and the UWK has the 8260NGW .

Send it to China is a nightmare but let's consider the situation on the side of a end user, he buys a card declared as new, mounts the card correctly, installs windows 10 (two version), installs all drivers from the asus site ...
If the card works correctly (I must say that the serial number is not present in the bios and I think it should be present) there should be no problems, is it correct?

Can you post your bios backup.The UW and UWK have 2 different bios. Does the boards silkscreen part number match with any part numbers on the stickers . Did you check LAN MAC address.

The LAN is missing in your pic on device manager. Do you have the MAC address on a sticker on the ram slot. I could try adding the mac to the bios manually but its easier to use asus bt2.exe tool .After adding a mac and getting an ip address through the lan ,the wifi may start working.

EDIT: i`ll post a bios to try.
EDIT: Added bt tool, zip password in pm .

With HEX editor I found the MAC location (2301C2h) on the old UX510UW bios, if the location is the same, I can put the same MAC on UX510UWK bios. Unfortunally the chinese guy has remove all labels on board so I don't have the original mac.

Last news,
I followed the instructions of the link, posted by @gabiz_ro,
and indeed wi-fi is on.
At this point I don't know whether to deliver it to the owner with this change. I also bought the original wi-fi card, Tuesday should arrive.

Good news,
I learned something else, this notebook accept only intel 8260 wifi card, otherwise it is necessary to cover two pins to enable wi-fi and BT.
