    After my restoring my iPad on iOS 7.0.4 through iTunes, the wifi option is always off and greyed out. I'm pretty sure it's a software issue because the wifi was working fine before the restore. I'm aware of this being an issue on iOS 7, but only on iPhones, and usually a hardware issue.
    I'm kind of hesitant to try thowing it in a freezer...
    Any ideas, guys? I've tried restoring it already, thanks!
    FYI, celluar works.

    Okay, do I just put it into DFU mode and restore via iTunes?
    Thanks for the reply!

    Aye, that should do the trick.

    I will say, how old is your iPad 2? I had a iPhone 3G where over time the WiFi chip came "unsoldered" from the main board, and had the same symptoms you are having. Could be that there is a physical issue with the chip perhaps.

    Unlikely, but possible! You can always take it to an Apple Store if you have one nearby, and they will diagnose it for you.
