Hi

I think you will have to take the connection issue up with the server admin of that game as if they dont like you they could be messing with you and its not an issue with your PC, but more your account on the game server.

Not sure about the Banned situation, but is your game updated to the version the server is running? in bf2, i wasnt able to join some servers until i upgraded my game to the version the server runs.

The server admins might hate someone in an IP range close to yours (translation: someone in that IP range has been banned), and if your router assigns a dynamic IP, it might once in a while assign one in that banned range. Next time it happens, try power-cycling your router and see if that lets you back in.

Try a different server with a lower ping,you say the admin's hate you so I'm assuming you use the same server.

So try one that's closer and also contact your ISP and ask them to diagnose your connection you could be sending bad data,another likely problem if its just started recently is that you've installed a program that requires internet access while your gaming bogging down your connection.

So make sure no other internet programs are running in the background

If your connection is corrupting the information due to for example noise on a DSL line,your phone company can test for this,your ISP can fault check your connection to their server.
