Default Wifi Issues

I'm having issues with my Wifi and clueless on how it got to this point. Everytime I try to turn it on, it turns back off automatically. I'm at home trying to connect so it should have the password saved already. Any ideas on what to do?

I'm running Wicked Rom V7, I have been out with friends all day drinking. Haven't used my phone besides texting, Instagram, and Facebook. It was fine this morning til now.

Are you sure its not working? I mean after drinking all day, a lot of things might seem broken that aren't. :beer:

If you are sure its busted, check these things...

Make sure the password on the router hasn't changed. If you live with other people you never know. Or the router could have just reset to defaults for some odd reason.

Delete the saved WiFi connection on your phone and start over. The password in your phone might have been corrupted too, causing it to send the wrong password to the router. Don't try to fix it. Just delete the entry and start over. That way if its another problem you'll fix that issue too.

Try this,

Download and cwm/twrp flash the Ktoonz kernel, that usually
fixes most wifi issues which people are having.

Here are the direct download links for the Touchwiz JELLYBEAN 4.3 VERSION:

OR if you are using 4.2.2 rom then get the Touchwiz JELLYBEAN 4.2.2 VERSION:
http://ktoonsez.jonathanjsimon.com/s...11.14.2013.zip

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

I flashed the 4.2.2 and still have the same problem, I just hope it isn't any hardware issues. I guess I'll be backing everything up and reflashing the rom.

Found out every time I install this app I have the issues. So if any of you who had the same issue as me, just don't install this app. If you did already, uninstalling it won't help. Back-up necessary stuff and just reflash rom.
