You do not have to be rooted to connect to WiFi. You might have to manually connect to Wi-Fi or do a factory reset.

Or you might have a phone with a bad wifi radio.

If you have a wifi router running in your house and you turn wifi on (on the phone), you should see the signal from the router within 5 seconds.

(Of course if there are no wifi routers in the vicinity you won't see any signals. You have to provide the wifi signal, the carrier doesn't. Some people think it just comes with the phone service.)

Do you have wireless internet? Is the WiFi on your phone actually turned on?

I have this problem too. Glad to see you are unrooted and stock. I had deleted many .apk's and thought it was something I did.

Just get an app from the play store to fix it for the time being.

Default wifi

Factory reset is a pain on the neck, I solved this issue by turning flight mode on, the restarting and as the phone restarts on flight mode I turned the wifi on and it sees everything now. give it a try
