I had the same problem. I spend 40 minutes with tech support who were quite helpful but eventually agreed phone was faulty.  I have sent it back and am awaiting replacement. (purchased directly from Nokia)

Re: Nokia c7 wifi auto connects

theres a task running in the background which is invisible to end user and tries to connect . install mobishield antivirus and kill the tasks running, disable autostart . then all will be fine . elsewhere do a soft reset

If widgets have been ruled out, other common things that could be connecting to the internet are e-mail, Mail for Exchange, and perhaps A-GPS and network-based positioning if you use Ovi Maps or geo-tagging in the camera.

Re: Nokia c7 wifi auto connects

some applications running at background and can not see them

install any task manager (some are free) and close all progress like vagelis saying

also what you can try is to put the device offline mode and then back to the profile you was using
should disconnect from internet
