    Check your security settings on the PC... see if somehow your IP got blocked.

    Your IP Address has been banned .... by what site, forum or application?

    Most likely you have an infection on your system, and it is throwing out packets everywhere.

    Go to www.malwarebytes.org, download the program, install in safe mode and run a full scan, remove everything it finds, then reboot.

    Update: Gee, Martin and I responding at once, that is kinda scary. :)

    Try clearing your cache on your Droid.
    menu > settings > applications > manage applications > menu > filter > all > go to the browser and clear your cache. Also clear any history from the browser settings. Cookies and all.

    It can't be that he's just banned from the site, his password would have prevented his logging in at all. Has to be something else going on.

    apparently either your router or ISP is blocking the site
