    Wifi will not turn on

    I am running rooted stock on my GN, and my will will not turn on.
    When click the switch in the settings, it does nothing, and when I go to the network list, is just says "Turning of wifi..." but does nothing.

    I have tried a battery and SIM card pull to no avail. I also have installed Bugless Beast to see if that would fix it, but I am having the same issue.

    Any suggestions?

    probably a kernel issue but with out a logcat i cannot be sure, download terminal from the market and run
    "logcat > /sdcard/logcat.txt" without parenthisis and upload that file here or copy its text content to your post... or pm me with the file


    edit: forgot to add make sure you try switching wifi on or off before running logcat (:

    Try typing "ifconfig wlan0" then post the output.

    I'll figure this out ahah


    Edit: oh and make sure you check to make sure wifi tethering and all tethering is off, logcat says the problem started when tethering was turned on and the daemon for wasn't loaded or something.

    Yeah the daemon isn't being started to load the device, I would use the gnex utility to flash back to stock then reroot.

    It could be something more fundamental
    Then the rom, like a messed up radio or whatever...
    Sorry I couldn't help you fix it without flash back to stock but I don't think its possible to fix.

    Have the exact same problem here. sent back for repairs. might be something to do with 4.0.2? my friend has a GN on 4.0.1 and hers has been working fine for a while now. mine stopped working about a week after updating to 4.0.2 so maybe something is there? something was mentioned in the changelog about wifi when updating to 4.0.2 aswell. just a thought

    WiFi won't turn on.

    I am experiencing exactly the same issue. WiFi can't be turned on, it just sits there saying "Turning on WiFi"...

    Now, this happened yesterday night, after a somewhat extensive use of tethering, i have never used tethering for so long as yesterday night.

    WiFi seemed to work normally after that, but then, suddenly, WiFi died and can not be turned on again on my Galaxy Nexus. I think it probably has something to do with tethering as the 3G aand WiFi chip is the same, 3G seems to be working fine.

    I may go to a previous version of Android, flashing it back and see it it solves anything.

    Thanks for your comments.
