My wireless keyboard and wireless mouse stopped working after a power outtage of no more than 1sec.

So I am typing this from my wired kbd, but I prefer the wireless one.

Any ideas ?

Can you try your wireless keyboard & mouse on another PC to see if the wireless USB dongle was damaged by the power outage ?
I don't have another PC. But I do have another USB dongle. I have a 10-Port USB strip on the floor. That wasn't affected. But the 4-Port USB strip on my desk, which is where the wireless USB dongle is connected. Seems to be dead.

So is the four-port USB strip dead, the wireless USB dead, or both?
While watching the Device Manager. I disconnected, and re-connected the 4-Port Hub. Nothing happened in the Device Manager. To me, that says that it is dead. As for the wireless USB Dongle. I will need to test that in a new Hub.
