If it finds it, it will turn wifi on. However, wifi will not stay on with this profile alone, so I created this second profile:

The context is "Wifi Connected" to my home SSID. The two tasks are "Wifi set to on" and "Variable set %HOMEWIFI to 1". The end tasks are "Variable Clear %HOMEWIFI", "Wait 5 minutes", and "Wifi set to off".

This turns wifi off if the home SSID is missing for over five minutes. I do this so it doesn't turn it off if I just run out to my car and it looses the signal temporarily. This should take care of your wifi issue (and 4G will toggle off if Wifi is on). I don't know how to toggle between 4G and 3G.
What is SSID and how to I find it?
