ok i posted similarly in alliance rom thread and searched google without a solution.

i just migrated from a andybones.to AllianceRom - Build 23 and i am having issues with wifi working. i am unable to enable wifi. everytime i attempt to turn it on it turns right back off. i installed per directions in OP with total wipe. everything else appears fine. just no wifi. any help please. thanks!

i have pulled battery and rebooted, cycled airplane mode several times, reflashed the rom etc. additionally i nandroided back to previous ROM and have no wifi issues with the andybones nor with stock unrooted.. so i'm guessing the issue resides somewhere within alliance rom. perhaps a setting or two which i may have missed?

thanks
mark

SOLVED: deleted data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf then rebooted and POOF! all is well. "wpa_supplicant.conf" stores wifi SSID and passwords.

You probably did a dirty flash instead of a clean flash?

thanks. actually i had some wifi passwords that i badly needed and which i did not back up with titanium, so i retrieved the wpa_supplicant.conf from nandroid bakup of prior rom. after wiping all and then flashing ROM i copied and pasted the wpa_supplicant.conf from my nandroid of old rom.

moral of the story system data probably not good to copy and paste.
