Default Wifi problem - no icon and not connecting

Hello all,

I have a Philips W626 (an unusual brand/model I know) and have recently got a problem with the wifi on this phone. It was working fine before.

The phone is rooted.

The wifi is on according to the phone, it displays available connections but won't connect. The wifi status remains on 'scanning' even though there are lots of connections available (which I've conncted to previously) and then 'disconnected'. When I try and connect, it just says, 'connecting...authenticating...disconnected'. One connection says 'Disabled' but I can connect to it on my laptop just fine.

Even though when I go into settings it says wifi is enabled, no 'wifi icon' appears in the status bar.

Tethering doesn't seem to give me internet access either.

I'd really appreciate your help.
