    Any chance it's still under warrantee, because it sounds like a serious, maybe even hardware, problem. I can't think of any way to lock wi-fi from turning on. Which makes sense. The iPad is practically useless without it.

    With everything you've done so far, the only other thing I can think of that might work is a restore using a computer and iTunes. Be sure to have a good backup and save all important documents and/or pictures off the iPad before proceeding.

    If the restore does not work, I'm afraid that Apple support may be your only option.

    I'm going to list the usual fixes below, in case you missed one, though it sounds like you've covered those bases pretty well.

    The Usual Fixes

    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app:

    iOS 6: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app.

    iOS 7: Double tap the Home button to get the multitasking display. Swipe up on the problem app's thumbnail image (not the icon).

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Reset All Settings: Another, somewhat more drastic thing you can do is Reset All Settings. You'll find this under Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. It won't erase any of your content, apps, or accounts; but you will have to go through most of your other settings and re-tweak them back to your liking.
