My internet connection has slowed to a snails pace, this is like using dialup@2400 baud. I checked my security logs to find outside IP addresses launching Syncflood attacks.

HOW do I get this to stop and restore my internet speed?
Unplug all your devices / disconnect then from your LAN.
Connect them back, one at a time, to see which one brings down the house. When you find the guilty part (and it might be more than one device), you will need to take it off-line and sanitize it.
First, you know your modem and probably your router are working correctly. That's the part this particular peer-to-peer forum is here to support.
Next, follow the advice you were given: Run your computer's virus protection software and tell it to quarantine all suspicious files. If you don't already use some sort of VPS, you were asking for trouble and it has found you. I suggest you also run the free version of adwcleaner that is now part of MalwareBytes. Again, tell it to quarantine everything it finds, then permanently delete those files. Do the same with your USB drive to ensure you are not reinfecting from that source. When you have finally eradicated the viruses, install a good antivirus package on each of your internet devices and use it regularly, if not continuously.
You can use "whois" to figure out who is attacking you on each hostile IP address and from what part of the world, if you are interested. Chances are that each is another infected computer whose owner is unaware of what's going on in the background.
You can ask additional anti-virus questions and get more of the same advice from staff in the Antivirus & Internet Security forum.
