Banco Nacional router causes outage of Internet

The router that handles Internet traffic for Banco Nacional failed Tuesday morning, and customers could not complete online transactions for six hours. Service finally was restored about 4 p.m.

A bank employee said that computers within banks were working normally and that urgent transactions could be completed if a customer wished to visit a local branch and conduct business through a live teller. Automatic tellers connected to the bank also functioned normally.

The outage took place the day after a legal holiday when many employees of various companies were returning after a three-day weekend.
