The service wanted to charge me almost 60€ more for their work, plus they said that they would most probably reflash the ROM and I would lose all my data...
And I only wanted to save my data. So, for me, this is the best solution.

Sounds like the antennas are not contacting properly. Seems it can happen to anyone upon removing the backplate.

I've just disassembled it and reassembled again. Everything looks good. All connections are good and nothing seems to be loose.
I even tried to press the back panel around the camera lens to make a better contact with the antenna, but still nothing.
Looks like this in the WiFi settings...


So, actually, I think it's a software problem and am going to root it now and flash the new ROM.

After that we'll see.
If there isn't any success after that, you all know where to find spare parts for your Nexus 5.

Hope it's just software issue, reflash stock after unlocking bootloader http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...image-t2513701

I just finished reflashing the stock ROM and it seems like it wasn't a software issue... after selecting the language it says "Turning Wi-Fi on..." and it doesn't do anything...

More suggestions?
