    I been having this problem for like a month, my android tablet's wifi keeps having that grey wifi icon and I can't connect to the internet or anything!
    I know my tablet is old but can anyone help? Oh and by the way, I tryed all of the including thing to fix it (But didn't work)
    1.) Turning off wifi and then turn it on again
    2.) Turning on airplane mode and the off
    3.) Reset tablet
    4.) Clear data and force stopping google frame service
    5.) Turning off the wifi router and then turn it on
    But none of them worked so I hope you guys have another way to help. Thank you.

    Is the actual wi-fi switch greyed out, or is the wi-fi icon in the notification bar?

    I just fixed this on my Note 3 with a simple step

    1. Turn on flight mode
    2. You will find out that the wifi button can now be turned on
    3. Once turned on, switch off flight mode

    It worked for me.

    Lakshya Yadav, Thank you thank you thank you. I am so glad to have found this post. I tried every other solution I could find and NOTHING worked on my ancient tablet (Lenovo a5500-F). I knew it was not a problem with my router since the tablet showed a greyed out wlan button on multiple systems and all my other devices could connect. This worked. So thank you again.
