1. Administrator IP address is from a different state and its not my IP.

2. I ban the IP and then I get this;
Your IP address has been banned.

3. Admin logs shows that IP address.

The spam I am getting is very light but its annoying, its showing up as this IP that I never ran into this issue before where now when i login it says im banned..... but i can still get into the backend.

4. The IP address is actually of my host for the forum.

I have updated the plugins, I have reCaptcha, changed the admin pw, changed the ftp pw, added Cleantalk spam etc.

This is for www.talkfloods.com

So it's saying that your IP is banned when you ban that IP that isn't yours? Do you have CloudFlare or some other reverse proxy? Chances are you're not mapping HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, add this to your config.php:

Code:
$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
If that doesn't fix it you'll probably need to contact your host
