Why is my computer banned from the network?

Solution If your MAC address or computer is banned it means your computer is compromised usually stemming from a virus/trojan or spyware. It could also be banned for excessive network bandwidth usage, such as serving out excessive amount of data.

Make sure you have all the appropriate updates/software tools applied to your computer to keep it clean. Look under Protecting your PC link for more information.
