I have the same issue on my ipad. They claim it is a HW issue but I don't believe that. It only happened when I upgraded the OS. Prior to that, there was NEVER a problem. Right after the upgade, it started. I connected it to the PC to do a backup and then reset the network connections and after several attempts it worked. However, after several days, it now happened again. I haven't reset it again connected but will. I firmly believe this is a major Apple OS issue and not a hardware issue. Apple needs to get their S together and fix this.

I have covered this problem in another thread.
I have a theory now that this has something to do with updating via wireless Internet on 4s' running 5.1.1 but do not have enough data to say for sure it would be helpful if people could supply the following information with their posts.
Date of Update:
*Updated Via Wifi?:
*Apps running at time of update (if possible):

Greyed out WiFi (or any component) is a hardware issue.
If it happens after performing an update to iOS that is due to the hardware problem being uncovered by the radical changes made to your operating system. If it was a software issue, restoring your iPhone to factory settings and setting up as a new phone will resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue, it's hardware.

Have you tried resetting all settings?
Go to settings>general>reset then reset all settings

I had this problem in iTouch after software grade, restore all settings did not work, so I connected to iTunes on computer, used a back up from an old iTouch (2010) and it works perfectly now. It must be the latest software updates and not a hardware issue as I feared reading some of the forums. So downgrade your iOS software by using an old back up.

Hi.. I'm on the verge of giving back this phone back to my network carrier and prefer to get a samsung or go back to Blackberry.. I was a blackberry user... so the Z10 might be a better option... considering unless Apple does some miracle to solve our WIFI problem.

Okay I share all af the problems above. i went to Lndon Regent Street Flagship Apple store, they admit some of the 4S iphnones have a fault when you upgrade to the latest OS. Apparently the softwsre recognises a hardware problem on old 4s phones and kills the WiFi- I am non tech in case u didnt guess!
The short is i paid £139.00 for a new phone! They say _sorry about that but best they can dan do because old phone means no warranty,- if i were anybody with old 4S phone and no probs my advice is do NOT upgrade because there is no measurable difference. f you are like me and its too late (they will not down grade the software on your old phone but wil smile sympathetically), complain that the upgrade has cost you despite the fact that your old phone was fine!
To my knowledge, having been to the flagship store in London, there is no other work around and Apple basically say the best they can do is sell you a newer phone for a few quid less than retail despite the fact their software F****d ur old phone.
I am a big Apple fan usually, I have it at home and at work but I am losing the faith!
