Since I have been running my BBS I have noticed that there has been a slow down of internet access to my other computers. This is most noticeable when using a web browser and is accessing DNS or downloading mail. I have checked
the logs and I have since a LOT of banned ip's and was wondering if I should
think about changing my telenet port for my board or will this slow down after all the systems stop trying to get into my board.

Either change you inbound telnet port, run a firewall to block IPs or countries, or put a CAPTCHA type in your prelogin sequence somewhere, which is what I did -- my WINServer asks you to answer a simple math question before prompting you for your user/firstname and lastname.
It's worked out well so far, but I might make it to where you are just told to type in a random number that a computer gives you. But, that
may be too easy. :)
