The login process to my wifi hotspot is just too complicated, I won't go into details, but it doesn't stop at just typing a password. I don't want to do that, but there are just too many little problems with my console.

  • Are you factory resetting your WiFi or Xbox?

I want to say yes:


Warning Resetting your console to its factory defaults erases all accounts, saved games, settings, and home Xbox associations. Anything not synchronized with Xbox Live will be lost. Your console syncs with Xbox Live automatically when it’s connected with the service, so if you've been offline for a while, you'll need to connect to Xbox Live before taking these steps.

Your wifi information will be saved in the settings that will get wiped.

You could try just "Reset and keep my games & apps", that may do the same thing though the page does not specify.
