This unit should print on USB regardless of how the machine settings are. You will need to install the driver on your computer, available as a download on the Canon web site.
Setting up the unit for a network can be involved, and depends on how you have your computers networked.
`resetting' the factory settings will not solve either issue.

After the power went out and came back up the wireless printer is orange and i reinstalled all the drivers on all the laptops, but it wont communicate with the printer lexmark x4650

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.
If connection is still not established, try to print the network settings page to determine if your printer is still registered in your wireless network. 1. Press Setup (pattlnk_632008_2048-x4650stup.jpg) on the printer operator panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, and then press(pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg). 3. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg at Print Setup Page. 4. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg when prompted to Load Paper. 5. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. The network settings page will now print.
Check the SSID and the IP address on the settings page. If info shows that your printer is no longer registered, you may need to reset the wireless network settings of the printer.
Follow steps 1 & 2 above, 3. Press the right or left arrow button until Reset Network Adapter Defaults is displayed, and then press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. 4. Press the right or left arrow button to display Yes, and then press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. 5. Observe the message"Clearing Wireless Settings". The WiFi light will momentarily turn off then lights up solid orange. You can now launch Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant (Macintosh) to reconfigure your printer to connect to your network.
