Did you have your other devices connected to a surge protection device?

Even if not, a local lightning strike can do a lot of damage. A direct strike on a local line, such as the telephone line feed for your internet connection, can fry everything. The telecom companies do their best, and also use surge protection devices, but a proximity strike on the lines can take a whole city out.

I have seen main trunk backbones disabled by lightning strikes, and twice main backbone triangulations between major cities, ( and in one case another country), completely disabled by a lightning strike.

Anyway, try the USB card. It might just solve all your problems.
