some other device on USB causing problems.
your WiFi isn't turned off

trying a port on the other side might help in some cases

What’s the uptime of the system?
Tried a restart? Not a full shut down just a restart.

I had this on a cheap USB stick I was using on a raspberry pi. I think it was thermal related since it was ok when in the cold shed in winter.
