This is NOT the answer, but at least a work around for users suffering the same issue.

Create a rc.local file in /etc/rc.d/

# vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Then enter the following 4 lines:

/usr/sbin/modprobe -r r8723au
/usr/sbin/modprobe r8723au
exit 0

Then :wq and reboot

This will de-register and then register the module at boot, forcing the module to load.

I've been running this method for over a week without issue.
