On menu what colour it is.
Then it is a hard ware issue which is very easy to repair.
You need to heat a specific point on the mother board.
There is a tuto on youtube.

SOURCE: wifi grey area on iphone 4s

there might be a problem with your logic boardl, it seems to me that your motherboard hould be repaired or replaced. i've seen that you can reflow (resolder) the wifi chip which sometimes gets knocked loose. you can venture out and do it yourself.
if you look for repair guides online for a motherboard replacement you will find something. I work for company that does iPHone repair in NYC and we do this repair frequently.

My wifi wont turn on my iphone 4S why

common problem with iphone 4s. Means your wifi chip is disconnected from circuit board or defective. Some small iphone shops fix it by resoldering, but under some conditions it may happen again. High/low temperatures, drops and so on. If phone is still under warranty - apple will replace it free.

How do I connect to WiFi on my Apple iPHone 4s?

Try settings - general - reset - reset network settings

Then try to look for available wifi networks again. If that doesn't work check your router has wifi switched on

If that doesn't work it may be that your wifi antenna in the iPhone is faulty

Iphone 4s wifi on/off

defective wifi unit in the phone. time to get a new phone as they don't fix those.

(similar type problem in my samsung, galaxy, S4. the tech at the booth asked me how i kept it running this long.... had it 6-7 years now....)

FYI: cellphones are designed for obsolescence - within 3-4 years, the battery will fail - if nothing else does - and the batteries are no longer replaceable by a user.
