Never heard of a phone being used to setup a router. Usually requires a wired connection first to then setup the wifi.
Setting to factory will do just that, wipe out all wired and wireless settings which includes passwords.

You need a computer to set up the router. Perhaps you can borrow a laptop from a friend. You can't setup a router with a xbox or phone. Don't assume you have wifi with default factory. A number don't until you set it up.

You might be able to use the Xbox if you can connect it to the router via a cable, provided the Xbox has some kind of built in browser software. I'd highly recommend having a laptop on standby.
Basically you need a wired connection to configure the router.
