it's obviously your ip get blocked in that router.

as silviot said, might be you have suspicious connection. maybe you do too much connect-disconnect. and might also be your pc get infected with some malware doing the bad connection you do not know.

are you getting public ip from your ISP? is it static or dynamic? if you're on private ip (192.168.x.x or 172.16.x.x or 10.x.x.x) then you might share same public ip with dozens or maybe hundreds of other pc. then, the problem might caused by other pc you have no control of...

talked with your host is the only way to know. it's their network. they can investigate from their site.

meanwhile, check your pc for malware, open proxy, etc...

DennyHalim, silviot, thanks, indeed I had been blocked by the hoster, have it fixed by now, w/o explication, though. – Thomas Traub Mar 18 '10 at 14:30

You probably somehow triggered a ban from your IP address. Some activity you have done has been seen as "suspicious".

This is something you should discuss with

Usually this kind of ban is temporary (expect some hours/some days).

In the meanwhile you can use a proxy if you need access to your sites.
