Did you try going back to Stock ROM? I would strongly recommend flashing back to the Stock Rom and then --

Enter the following line of USSD code in your Phone Dialer to get into the Diagnostic Menu

type *#*#3424#*#* and you will enter in HTC Diagnostic menu 3424 means (DIAG)

Test your Wifi and Bluetooth from there. If you are still not getting any positive results, then go the Settings > About Phone > Software update and check for any updates regarding the phone from Htc.

I faced a similar problem regarding Wifi not powering on and it turned out to be a Settings Update which broke the Wifi. I uninstalled the update and the phone worked as a charm.

Good Luck,
Ravi.

I had the Wi-Fi problem, but flashing a kernel fixed it all.
Here are some other links that may help;

WiFix

& here is one too, it might be a hardware problem.

The golden pins in the back cover also need to be clean in order to Wi-Fi work.

EDIT: Make sure the golden pins & back cover are very clean, and in contact properly.
All antennas are in the back cover.
Including bluetooth.

Mate try ruu

I was suffering from same issues

Changed lot off Roms , even I restored my stock Rom backup but still same problem.

Finally I flashed original ruu

And all problms r gone

Did u try WiFi hotspot??

Check it , it also keep turning on and never turned on .

For me
This problem occurs when I flashed jelly bean sense 4+ Rom and switch back to arhd and other ics Rom

Hi i baught a sensation cheap coz the wifi r bluetooth did not work, tried every fix, s-off, radio, firmware everything but nothing worked at all. Turned out that it was the back battery cover, there is copper looking pins on there but they aint pins, they just conductive paint and they worn through to the plastic so this is what i done, look at the pics, now i have perfect wifi and bluetooth ever since. Its worth a try
