    Welcome t iPhoneForums, alisha!

    Error 3194 indicates that you're trying to install the wrong software. The only software you'll be able to install your iPhone is 9.1, because it's the only one signed by Apple right now.

    Usually, restoring your device using iTunes downloads the right version automatically, so you don't have to search for it and download it.
    If you still prefer doing this manually, make sure you download 9.1 for your 4s.

    Glad to help.

    Try resetting network settings in Settings - General - Reset. This will remove every information about Wi-Fi, Bluetooth pairings, ... You'll have to set these up again. Hopefully it will also solve your problem with your Wi-Fi.
