First, if you are using Oracle 10g, this parameter is for backward compatibility. DB_CACHE_SIZE is the one which you may have to set.

But, if you want to continue using DB_BLOCK_BUFFERS, then the minimum value is 50.

You may need to set this parameter either in the pfile or the spfile and do a database bounce.

For example, ALTER SYSTEM SET DB_BLOCK_BUFFERS=2048 scope spfile;  and then a database restart.

I can suggest the following:
1. Recreate the listener and try connecting again
2. See if there is a network delay
3. Provide the contents of sqlnet.ora, sqlnet.log file and alert.log file (specific to the time of error) so that more analysis could be done

Could you let us know when exactly do you get this error?
