Default [Q] WiFi problems after update (NOT Rooted)

So I just got a replacement S4 in the mail after the other one got dropped in some water. . .

After getting the phone on, I did the update and all seemed well. . . . until I went to connect to my wifi.

I did not want to root this phone as its my girlfriends and she never seems to care, but would rooting it and installing a custom ROM fix the wifi bug?

OR is there any other way to fix the wifi problem? I am hopping I dont end up having to go back to a sprint store and getting a new phone.

Thanks

Sometimes the update doesn't copy everything right, first, try to odin just the modem software for your version that you can find here in unknownforces thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2338919

If that doesn't work, I would download the full mk2 tar file from sammobile.com and odin that to the phone. If you are still having problems after that you can try odining the MJA modem from unknownforces thread above.
