    Here do this then you can go ahead do a fresh install of 7. This will be some extra steps but be worth it.

    Entering DFU Mode (Official Instructions)
    Plug your device into your computer.
    Turn off the device.
    Hold the Power button for 3 seconds
    Hold the Home button without releasing the Power button for 10 seconds
    Release the Power Button but keep holding the Home button
    Keep holding the Home button until you are alerted by iTunes saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode

    Turn WiFi off. Turn it on again.

    I was unable to connect to my home WiFi, but could connect to my MiFi and work WiFi (go figure). I restarted the phone...same thing. I even rebooted my router! Finally I turned off WiFi and turned it on again and was able to connect right away.

    Try restarting the home wifi device... and your iPhone.

    1. Reboot your Wireless Router
    2. Reboot your iPhone
    3. Go to Settings>General>Reset and then select "Reset All Network Settings"

    I'm having to restart my home router every night when I get home from work. I've never had problems with my phones not connecting to my home network. I'm about ready to take my new 5s back to the store.

    I have my router setup in a way so all my iOS devices each have an assigned IP address to their MAC address and since doing that I haven't had any problems.

    I was having this problem with my device as well. My wife also have an iPhone 5 on 7.02 and hers had no problems. I would enter the password to my network and it would just give the wheel spin next to the network with no message indicating failure as well as not connecting. Of course I did the whole reset network stuff, forget network and readd. Didn't work. And I wasn't rebooting my router because all my other devices connected just fine. So I noticed the IP address it was assigning to my device was not in the string for my router. Not sure why. So I manually entered the network information then rebooted the phone and boom, it connected. I changed it back to automatic DHCP just for kicks and it grabbed it's own IP address within my routers string and now works fine. So I just wanted to offer that as a solution to anyone still having issues.... try to manually add your network information. You can go to your router settings and checkout the main IP address and range.
