Online and Mobile Banking Help

Answers to frequently asked questions...

There are several possibilities.

1. First, make sure your internet is working. Can you visit other websites (a new page, something that hasn't been stored in your computer’s cache)? If you can’t visit other sites, shut down your computer, unplug it, wait 20 seconds, then reboot and see what happens. Sometimes, this works like magic!

If you still can't get online, try the same trick with the computer AND the modem. Shut both the computer and modem down, unplug them, wait 20 seconds, turn the modem back on, wait for it to reboot, then turn on your computer. If you still can't get online, call your internet provider and see if there’s an outage in your area. If not, report your individual outage. With any luck, the fix will be simple. Often, the company can easily reset your modem from a distance.

2. If your internet connection is working perfectly and you’re only having trouble with the First Northern Bank and Trust website, we apologize for any disruption in service.
