    When you have wifi on, you should be able to click the menu button for advanced options. There might be something there that is keeping it on.

    Has this been happening the whole time you have had the device?

    Ok, let's try a reboot into recovery and clear the system cache. See if that helps. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
