After the factory reset and during the set-up that follows on reboot, does it prompt you to set up a wireless connection? This should usually the second step in the set-up process.

Glad to know your phone is now working normally. If you are on stock 4.1.2 getting 4.3 OTA update should be a breeze. If required, however, I would suggest you take advantage of the flexibilities offered by the lower firmware especially free unlocking before updating to 4.3
