Hey guys I was messing around with the app "network spoofer" and "droidsheep" to play a joke on my roommates when my phone crashed and ever since I haven't been able to connect to wifi networks - *guess I get what I deserve for going on my roommates Reddit session and changing his language to 1337 speak.

If I disable/enable wifi, restart, mess with all the wifi settings I either can't find any networks or if I do find networks I cannot connect it just fails immediately.

Running cyanogen mod - latest snapshot and have yet to try a full restore but ideally I'd rather fix it w/o the full restore.

Was wondering if you guys had any suggestions or knew of a fix without restoring the phone (if that will even work).

Thanks guys!

Try deleting /data/misc/wifi and /data/misc/dhcp and reboot.
