    2 things to try:

    1. Try restarting your iPhone
    2. Try restarting your WiFi router.

    If restarting either of the devices doesn't work, perhaps resetting network settings on the phone might be of some help.

    Ok, next few steps:

    1. Try another Wifi router to see if the behavior is the same (Starbucks, public wifi, friend's house etc).

    2. Take your device to Apple. The WiFi radio in the device may be faulty.

    I'd restore as NEW before replacing hardware.

    Try resetting network settings before you do a full restore.

    Sounds like that was tried and didn't help based on an earlier reply.

    Based on you said you dropped the iPad, the innards may need to fixed. Is there anyway for you to run diagnostics?

    There USA bug in iOS 7 where a device running iOS 7 can't connect to certain type of wifi protocol, wpa2, for example, my iPhone with iOS 6 could connect but after updating to iOS 7 I couldn't comment anymore. Check the apple support forums, many reports of the same problem with no fix.
