If it's the wifi chip itself it's the very long grey metal component on the back of the logic board. You do see them for sale on eBay from time to time and I believe someone has put a source/link on a previous post about wifi chip for a US supplier. Obviously not a job for everyone but if you know someone handy...

There were loads of problems with wifi going AWOL when 4.0.x came out. I see you've tried reflashing but does this mean updating/restoring/reinstalling? Just an idea
