Sorry you are correct that command only works in adb do this instead of the above command

mount -o remount,rw /system

then when you are done do this instead of the other read only command

mount -o remount,r /system

Thanks I will try it, but I'm becoming more convinced this is a hardware issue.

I was on the phone today and the phone froze and I had to pull the battery. When I restarted the phone Wi-Fi was working for the first time in a week. While it was working I checked that file and it said the same exact thing. The phone then froze again (I think it was my fault because in the excitement of having Wi-Fi again I tried to update all of my apps and other things I can't do on the crappy 2g data I have at home) when I turned it back on Wi-Fi was no longer working.

So now I'm thinking that this has to be hardware. I will give your method a try.

Yea I think you are correct especially since you tried different roms. If you have warranty just unroot it and return it else keep posting here about the status and a will find a work around eventually

Well I finally switched back to ilwt and my wifi isn't working all of the time but it has worked for a few hours each day since I flashed it. Whereas on andromadus it didn't work at all for two months. Still haven't figured out what happened but at least I get to keep my G2. Although I'll probably move on the first time they put the note on sale later this year. Thanks aeliizondo for trying to help me!
