    Ok, I have found a temp. Solution - here is what makes it work again - for about 2-3 months - you need to take it to a technician and let him take it apart and heat the board with a heat gun - after that allow it to cool and then reassemble - that will work for 2-3 months. Apple like they had a defective batch made - they need to recall all and replace them. Its a dry joint somewhere on the circuit board so the heat fixes it temporary. Do not waste time with the software - it's the hardware that is not working.

    This solved my questionThis helped me

    Your technician did not rework the solder correctly if it is failing again.

     

    This is the real fix.

    You have to heat the Wi-Fi chip to rework the solder and then the Wi-Fi chip works again.  The problem was caused by iOS 6 which allowed the Wi-Fi chip to overheat.
