Default Wifi no longer working on Galaxy Player 4.0 YP-G1

Hello I have a Galaxy Player 4.0 that I purchased 15 months ago. All of a sudden it won't connect to WIFI. It just says obtaining IP Address, but never does. I tried what someone on these forums suggested by setting up a static IP address and it still wouldn't connect.

I contacted Samsung and after resetting my router to no affect they suggested that I do a factory reset. Well I tried but I couldn't reset my player. I went into settings and pressed reset the player went off and took me to a page that gave me some options. I clicked wipe data/factory reset scrolled down and hit yes. Then it took me back to that page and I pressed reboot system now. My device turned back on and is the same as it was before with all of my apps and everything else still there no factory reset. I've tried this more than five times with the same result. It just won't reset.

I'm running Steves Kernal 3.0 and I'm not sure if that could have something to do with it. Has anyone on this kernal reset their device successfully? Also when I first ran Steves Kernal 2.1 I accidentally held the up arrow and the power button and got stuck in a bootloop so I had to get a new stock rom from here Could there possibly be a problem with the rom? I already know that this rom isn't perfect because the clock and Samsung widgets don't work, but other than that I haven't had any problems with it. If all else fails I'm going to try to run this stock rom instead and see what happens. If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

I flashed a different stock rom now the widgets and clock work but it still won't connect to WIFI.
