So this is a nontehnical solution to fix your wifi troubles. While your phone is on, turn the wifi off and then reboot the phone. When the phone comes back the wifi will still be off but you will be able to switch it on and off. If you reboot the phone with your wifi on, then your wifi issues will come back when you turn the phone off. I've used this technique for the last two days on AOKP v2 but if all of the ICS roms are using the same kernel then this should work in every rom.

Unfortunately I have not been able to reproduce this result. This method works for me and is reliable and I'm sure it can help others as well. I've tried turning the auto sync on and off and that did not help either.

I noticed that if it gets "STUCK" turning it on or off, if you wait long enough in the actual wifi settings not the notification bar or in the initial wifi settings (where it lists the available networks) you will see that the top button will eventually be able to be used. I am talking like a few minutes. Of course it would probably be quicker to restart the phone.

Which is why rebooting the phone with the wifi turned off is the simple solution for me.
